Popular Youtube channel Lofi Girl stopped its two-year-long music stream due to a copyright strike.
The channel has over 10.7 million subscribers with over 668 million views on its stream: “lofi hip hop radio - beats to relax/study to”. The stream has created a strong community of users of lofi music enthusiasts.
According to a statement from Lofi Records, two of their streams got taken down due to false copyright claims from a Malaysian company called FMC Music Sdn Bhd Malaysia.
The representative said that Lofi runs a record label and animation studio and that they own all the rights to their music and artworks.
Youtube soon responded to the statement confirming that the copyright strike was false and will reinstate the video between 24 to 48 hours. They also terminated FMC Music’s Youtube account for the false claims.
