ATTENTION SOOMO VIDEO FANS: WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Sony/ATV has taken down our educational parody video Bad Romance: Women's Suffrage. As part of their copyright claims process, YouTube recently allowed Sony to place an ad on our video, and in an effort to defend the video and remove the ad, we’ve repeatedly appealed this claim on the basis of fair use provisions for parody works. As of now, the video has been removed from Youtube while Soomo appeals to Sony to reinstate the video under fair use guidelines.
If you think this video should be reinstated and ad-free, tweet @SonyATVMusicPub and let them know why you think they should #SaveBadRomance.
