    got clearance for the music in his video? hes just a newbie filmmaker and im pretty sure he doesnt have the resources to "buy" the rights to a kathy perry song like that.

    are there some loopholes ? i notice that youtube only removes audio from certain videos but then leaves others up why is that??

    Ask him.

    I did find that song all over YouTube so someone's not too worried about where it ends up. YouTube has "arrangements" with some music publishers, so perhaps that's the secret.

    I got a warning about including a Sony Corporation music track in a private video on YouTube (only for me to see) for including Working for the Man by Roy Orbison. Originally published in 1962, you'd think it was time they let go...
