Rebecca Black YANKS 'Friday' Off YouTube

6/16/2011 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The FUN, FUN, FUN is over ... Rebecca Black has officially pulled her "Friday" video off of YouTube  ... and TMZ has learned it's all over a fight over Rebecca's image.

Rebecca Black Friday

TMZ spoke with a rep for Black who tells us, "We can confirm that we submitted a Take Down Notice to YouTube as a result of the dispute we have with Ark Music regarding the 'Friday' video."

As we previously reported, Black's people have threatened legal action against Ark -- claiming the company that produced and wrote the song is wrongfully exploiting her image and her song because Ark does not own the rights to either.

Earlier this week, Ark -- which ran the YouTube account that hosted the video -- set up "Friday" as a $2.99 YouTube video rental. Clearly, the move pissed off Black's camp ... a camp that was simply looking forward to the weekend.

Doesn't look like Ark's too worried. They'll just go get another one.

Mass produced music has been around forever, this rapper guy from the weird car filled with tweens has just become the Ford of the industry.

Okay, I though Rebecca was that chick from Glee at first (I was confused about why it was so crappy)... But this was like watching Emma Watson sing... and it's not that bad.

Good. You know how annoying it was to watch something on Da Vinci and then see her video pop up 5 times in the suggestion box, related videos,etc? I get it. She successfully trolled Youtube.
