Justin Bieber Music Videos

YANKED From YouTube

8/29/2011 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber has been victimized by a brand new cyber-enemy ... an enemy who found a way to get every single one of JB's official music videos REMOVED from YouTube.

It sounds so simple -- a YouTube user who goes by the name iLCreation submitted a copyright claim on each of Bieber's videos ... including the "Baby" video which has over 600 MILLION views.

YouTube has a yank first, ask questions later policy when a copyright claim is made -- so they simply pulled the videos off the site ... until the dispute is resolved.

iLCreation also went after a few Lady Gaga videos -- but only a few of her videos are missing in action.

Bieber's VEVO channel (a dedicated site for music videos) has been completely wiped out for the time being ... but a rep for VEVO tells us, "Someone is making false copyright claims against the Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga channels and YouTube has blocked access to the videos as a result. We are working with YouTube to resolve ASAP."

A call to Bieber's camp was not immediately returned.

The videos have been restored. All is now right with the world.

This just shows youtube for what idiots they are. Fhuck Bieber, I'm not fighting his battles, but youtube allows people to stop free speech by not checking claims. It is horrendous and these tards should be ashamed of themselves.

¡¿Art?!    

A perfect example of one of the many problems with youtube. I can already see trolls and every offended poster reporting and getting videos removed left and right.

This same thing happened to Mishka the Talking Husky Dog a few weeks ago. The hacker took Mishka off YouTube for several days then put him back on and left a message that he did it just because he could.
