Popular YouTube user Michelle Phan is being sued for alleged copyright infringement on songs she has used in her videos, according to reports from the BBC. Ultra Records claims that Phan has used 50 of its songs in her YouTube posts and on her website illegally despite one of the label's own artists objecting to the legal action.

Yeah, I saw that. I was like hm,, maybe it's time to take down anything that may have 2 seconds of a song on it!

Record labels must be hurting if they are going after her.
