Rebecca Black's 'Friday' Pulled From YouTube (Again)

How was YOUR Friday? Mine was great! (More on that in my next post) - Here's a bit of news I never get tired of reporting:

Rebecca Black's 'Friday' video has once again been pulled off YouTube ... CBS news reports "The video's removal came after Ark Music Factory - which produced the song and hosted the music video on its YouTube account - set up "Friday" with a $2.99 fee as YouTube rental earlier this week.

Black's rep told TMZ, "We can confirm that we submitted a Take Down Notice to YouTube as a result of the dispute we have with Ark Music regarding the 'Friday' video."

The singer responded to news of the rental fee on her Twitter account on Tuesday.

"Thanks for all the messages regarding the $2.99 fee added to Friday video, I have NOTHING to do with this!!" she wrote, adding in a following message, "PS...My Manager and Lawyer are on this and are going to get to the bottom of this! Stay tuned..."

Black's team has been threatening legal action against Ark Music, according to reports, claiming that the company is wrongfully exploiting her image and song because it does not own the rights to either."

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
