Rebecca Black (AP)
Black's Popular 'Friday' Video Pulled From YouTube Amidst Legal Flap
Posted: June 17, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Rebecca Black's official "Friday" music video has been taken off YouTube.

The page where the video starring the 13-year-old singer once played now says it "is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black."

Black's spokesman says her team sent a takedown notice to YouTube because of a dispute over the video with Ark Music Factory, the company Black's parents paid $4,000 to produce the song and video.

Earlier this week, the firm began charging viewers $2.99 to watch the clip.

Lawyers for Black and Ark Music have been haggling over who owns the rights to everything associated with "Friday" since it became a sensation earlier this year.

The video had amassed more than 160 million views and more than 3 million "dislikes."
