Elijah Daniel's Music Video Was Just BANNED From YouTube For This One Annoying Reason
4 December 2017, 10:54
Elijah Daniel's "Elton John" music video disappeared from YouTube almost as soon as it was shared.
Fans were upset this weekend after the music video for Elijah Daniel's new single "Elton John" vanished from YouTube shortly after it was uploaded.
On December 1st, Elijah Daniel released the music video. But before the day was out, a copyright claim was made against the video by TMZ, allegedly because Elijah used footage belonging to them without permission.

Although some argued that copyright is copyright, and Elijah should have got permission to use the clip
OR OR OR maybe just don't infringe on copyright law lmao, always obtain permission to use footage that isn't yours. just take responsibility lmao.— Megan 👻 (@nahmegan) December 2, 2017
