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.
