Shaping the future of finance

Calvin

Twitter rage against YouTube, Sony and the BPI

Nothing to do with banks, although it is related as licensing is a key part of banking, but Calvin Harris has just had a little Twitter rage incident.

What?  Who?

Well, bearing in mind how easy it is to send that email you wish you hadn't (email is so last century), Calvin has just had a very public hissyfit against YouTube, Sony and the BPI who protect copyright laws in Britain. 

Calvin is a massively successful DJ and mood mixer, with several mega hits in the UK and his own  YouTube channel: I created disco

So here's a selection of tweets from his twitter stream over the last day (apologies for language which I've blanked):

Youtube just removed MY Fake Blood and High Contrast remixes of Ready For The Weekend due to a copyright claim from Sony Music (his own music label and management). What?! RAGE
