In case your enjoyable, learning, or writing intervals have felt an incredible disturbance within the pressure in latest days, look no additional than the saddest information for lofi beat lovers in every single place: The YouTube basic “lofi hip hop radio – beats to loosen up/research to” has been taken down.
The takedown got here from an routinely issued copyright strike, which means that somebody submitted a declare that the channel was taking part in copyrighted materials. YouTube’s system is constructed in order that when such violations are reported the video is routinely pulled down; it’s then on the video maker to show they didn’t violate copyright.
Lofi Lady, the account behind the streams, mentioned on Twitter that the declare was based mostly on “false” copyright strikes, and had reached out to Youtube to treatment the scenario. However each the “beats to loosen up/research to” and “beats to sleep/chill to” streams have been each down (and, when you’re , listed with a runtime of about 20,000 hours every).
Fortunately, Team Youtube responded on Twitter saying that they confirmed “the takedown requests have been abusive & terminated the claimants account,” noting that it could take 24-48 hours for the movies to pop again up on-line. (As of 4 p.m. EST, the streams had not been restored.)
In fact, there was already a push to #BringBackLofiGirl on Twitter, which incorporates an artillery of memes, Reddit conjecture, and fan artwork (as is the web’s wont). Whereas we look ahead to the soundtrack to our lives to come back again, we are able to at the very least rejoice within the web coming collectively to look out for Lofi Lady and her cat within the window.
YouTube’s shitty copyright system put the lofi continuum right into a state of disbalance, gentle can not exist with out darkness and darkness can not exist with out gentle, and my headcanon is that Darkish Lofi Lady and Lofi Lady are besties so #BringBackLofiGirl pic.twitter.com/ZtSX0YsimQ
