The free file hosting service Megaupload is on the entertainment industry’s s**t list for making copyright infringement so easy-peasy. But several high-profile artists – the sort that create that copyrighted material in the first place – have recently expressed their unabashed support for the site in a new music video.
In the “Megaupload Mega Song,” Will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, P. Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Kanye West, Lil John, Kim Kardashian, and more express their love for a service that lets you share their copyrighted material for free. I never thought I’d say this, but I have a newfound respect for Kim Kardashian.
The video was released over the weekend, and was quickly removed from YouTube, after Universal Music Group complained about – what else – copyright infringement.
