Romney ad pulled from YouTube after copyright claim

Mitt Romney’s new ad, “Political Payoffs and Middle Class Layoffs,” disappeared from YouTube this evening after a copyright infringement claim was filed by BMG Rights Management. Apparently, BMG objected to the use of several seconds of audio of President Barack Obama singing Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”

You do remember that impromptu cover version, right? No? We’ll, here’s a clip to refresh your memory … from YouTube.

If that video disappears, don’t fret: YouTube lists more than 900 search results for “Obama” and “Al Green.” Better get busy, BMG.
