Janet Jackson fans have claimed that they have received emails from Instagram claiming a breach of copyright.
Fans who have been posting videos and photos from Janet Jackson’s, Unbreakable tour have claimed to have received emails telling them “a third party reported that the content violates their copyright.” This has then led to the users accounts to be suspended.
The New York Post reports that Instagram have said “we have identified a bug that resulted in the removal of accounts that shouldn’t have been removed,”
It is known that Janet Jackson has a strong view on copyright protection. Such as an incident with producer Seven Aurelius after he posted an unreleased song, which he recorded with Jackson, on SoundCloud and Youtube, which resulted in both accounts being deleted in 2003. Jackson’s legal team then commented on the song S.E.X.L.I.N.E.S. “Miss Jackson has no interest in being associated with this song since she did not write it, produce it or perform in it. It is a hoax.”
A spokesperson for Instagram has said. “We have fixed the bug and are in the process of restoring the impacted accounts.” Although they continued “repeat offenders” would have their account suspended.
