YouTube makeup vlogger sued by record label for $150K per song


Makeup vlogger Michelle Phan, who's huge on YouTube, is on the receiving end of a copyright lawsuit over the background songs in her videos.

Ultra Records says she used 50 songs from acts represented by the label without consent--even though at least one of the label's own artists says she has that artist's consent. Ultra is seeking penalties of $150,000 per song, which adds up to $7.5 million total sought.
