PEWDIEPIE CLAIMS HE CAN’T USE HIS OWN MUSIC DUE TO YOUTUBE’S COPYRIGHT SYSTEM

WHAT HAPPENED?

PewDiePie revealed that he can’t use his own music anymore, including his immensely popular ‘B*tch Lasagna’ song, due to YouTube’s copyright system.

Not only did he describe the system as “backwards”, but he also claimed that it has allowed a company to claim music on his behalf.

He explained that if you click onto his B*tch Lasagna music video, it has been claimed by a company called RepostNetwork on his behalf.

Nah! What do you f**king mean? You can’t just say it’s on behalf of me. That’s not just stealing. That’s stealing and lying about it. I know I didn’t claim that. I didn’t tell anyone to do that.

PewDiePie pointed out that he even included a section in the video’s description saying: “Feel free to use this track. It won’t be claimed.”

I don’t know how this was possible that someone can claim my own video and say it’s me. How is that possible? I understand it’s a difficult process. It’s never going to be perfect. But the kind of stuff that happened… it’s not okay.

It’s not the first time, even just recently, PewDiePie has spoken out against YouTube — the platform he’s called home for over a decade.
