MrBeast slams major music labels over YouTube copyright claims

YouTube superstar Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson has openly criticized music labels for repeatedly using videos containing copyrighted material. In a rare Twitter rant, MrBeast went so far as to call out the music labels for being “c**ts” about the issue.

The YouTube copyright debate between original creators and users continues to heat up, especially when it comes to using music on the platform. As YouTubers struggle to include popular music tracks in their content, some argue that this is being “stolen” from original music artists.

For songwriters, it’s the potential loss of money. For content creators being slammed for using copyrighted content, this could mean having profitable videos shut down or even banned.

It’s a problem YouTubers of all sizes have grappled with, even MrBeast, who he claims has repeatedly attacked music labels for copyright infringement over what he claims to be salient material.

MrBeast is one of the most famous and fastest growing YouTubers in the world, especially after his recreation video Squid Game.

MrBeast hits at music labels

On May 10, MrBeast released an unusual tweet in which he criticized “major music labels” for continuing to launch copyright strikes against YouTubers.

“A major music label should prevent YouTubers from infringing on copyright at every opportunity and let us use their music instead,” he urged. “Then we YouTubers all get together and give them 10 billion impressions of their music because we don’t like it.”

Several YouTubers have been affected by issues with copyright claims on the site. For example, former Twitch streamer Ludwig was banned from the platform for playing “Baby Shark” during his stream. While PewDiePie has previously claimed he can’t even use his own music due to copyright issues.

Musicians criticize MrBeast’s attitude

However, MrBeast’s comments sparked a fiery debate among his followers, who came from both sides of the argument. Several musicians fired back at the YouTuber, arguing that “free publicity” isn’t fair payment for their work.

A Twitter user slammed MrBeast for commenting that he makes “$50 million a year on YouTube” while musicians often struggle to make ends meet: “How about you pay the creators who make your videos great do?”

One fan suggested one way creators could leverage the music while also providing money to original artists: “YouTube could have a library similar to its audio library, where you could license individual songs for use in a specific video, then the royalties could.” also find their way for artists.”

MrBeast didn’t respond to the counterarguments, but it’s clear he hopes to use music in his content to “woo” artists rather than steal their material. However, with songwriters claiming this isn’t enough payment for their work, the dispute is far from over.
