Sony Pulls Beyonce’s Music Videos from her own YouTube

Sony Music has taken the ax to Beyonce’s YouTube video account and has pulled the music videos from her account. Her own record label has removed hits such as “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” to be followed by a screen that says “This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.” I’m not quite sure Sony thinks that Beyonce is stealing her own music and videos from someone else. The most ironic part is that right after the error message, a banner presumably from the record label reads “Congratulations for winning six Grammy Awards.”

However, according to multiple sites, Motherboard.tv, BoingBoing.net, and TheWrap.com, Sony is still allowing fans to watch the some of the blocked videos on VEVO’s YouTube page, which is co-owned by Sony and Universal Music. Her “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” music video is nowhere to be seen and only a live version of “Sweet Dreams” is available for viewing.

The action against Beyonce has come in the same week that the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement leaked onto the web. The secret negotiating agreement was between countries such as U.S., Japan, Canada, Australia, South Korea, and the European Union and if put into force, allows law enforcement to close down sites and email accounts that the entertainment industry deems associated with sharing illegally obtained copyright material. But still, why they would consider Beyonce sharing illegally copyrighted material that stars herself and was made for her music, is strange.

This also comes after her and Lady Gaga made pop video history when their music video for “Telephone” debuted and hit number one on the Billboard Pop charts earlier this month, making them tied with Mariah Carey for six number one hits.
