Some days ago, The video was removed from YouTube for alleged copyright violation. of some of his songs. Something that is completely impossible, since Lofi Girl uses music from her own record company, Lofi Records, and all of it is licensed.
Even so YouTube did not hesitate to remove the video and send them a letter threatening to close the accountif they uploaded it again:

In the end it was discovered that the claim of rights carried out by a Malaysian company it was completely false. So the video now available again on YouTube.
These types of fraudulent practices are multiplying on YouTube in recent months. according to account TechCrunch, a few weeks ago several youtubers were denounced for violating copyright with the music of the Destiny game. But Bungie itself, owner of the rights, certified that they had not denounced anyone.
Is about companies making false copyright claimstaking advantage of the fact that YouTube removes the video first and investigates later.
In most cases they are simply looking for annoy, harm, or attack a rival. In others, blackmail to remove the complaint.
As we see in the tweet, Google has already verified that the claims are false, and Lofi Girl is back online. Millions of users who use their music to study or concentrate breathe a sigh of relief.
