Rebecca Black May Take ‘Friday’ Producers to Court


We saw this coming from a mile away. After Friday comes Saturday. Then after that comes Sunday. Then, the next day, is the day where Rebecca Black is ready to cash in on her not-so-successful success. According to Rolling Stone, Black and her mother Georgina Marquez Kelly (who initially paid for the “package” that landed Black into YouTube fame) are accusing the producers at Ark Music Factory of copyright infringement amongst other things over the way things have been handled with the phenomenon that is ‘Friday’.

RS is in possession of a letter from the mother and daughter team’s lawyer, which was sent to Ark Music Factory. The letter apparently alleges that Ark has committed a lot of no-nos, like failing to provide Black with the master recordings of her song and video. Their lawyer says that Black retains 100 percent ownership of the material. The lawyers also take Ark to task for exploiting Black’s likeness and her song on YouTube, iTunes, Amazon and Ark’s website. Additionally, the letter accuses the producers of creating an unauthorized ‘Friday’ ringtone and of advertising Black as an exclusive Ark recording artist on its website.
