Presumably, the quest to find a great follow-up “single” for YouTube sensation Rebecca Black is moving slowly.
The conflict between the two parties has come to light as a result of the “Friday” video being yanked off YouTube while the dispute gets settled.
But basically, this boils down to a royalties fight in which the path is somewhat unpaved.
See, Ark Music is a company that lets anybody — for a fee — come in and record a single/a video, pretending they’re a star.
The endgame here, normally, is not that the song ends up on the Billboard Hot 100.
Now Ark Music wants a piece of the pie — and Black’s lawyers are pushing back against them.
This is undoubtedly the least fun Friday Black has had in a while.
