Beyoncé pirates her own music, according to Sony take-down notice

In a just-for-fun blog post on the inanities that often arise in the copyright debate – you know, the things that should be suprising, but are often, unfortunately, not –  this week Sony Music removed music video content from  Beyoncé’s official youtube channel citing copyright infringement, according to E!Online. That’s right, Beyoncé is pirating her own music. The videos have since been restored (I know I’ll sleep better), but until they were potential viewers received this message: “This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.” I suppose in the geeky world of all things pertaining to copyright, this is what you could call a cosmic joke.
