ABC News Rebecca Black Pulls Her Viral Song Video On Friday

Rebecca Black is an amateur YouTube musician who soared into the public eye for her music video “Friday.”
Rebecca Black is getting her 16th minute of fame now that the teen starlet's infamous "Friday" video has been pulled off YouTube by her lawyers.
Remember Friday hitmaker Rebecca Black? Her hit viral song which made her an household Internet name in April — for all the wrong reasons, no less — has been yanked off of Youtube by Rebecca Black herself.
Black said in an interview with ABC News' Andrea Canning last month that she was shocked at the mean things people were saying.
Her song and the accompanying video has inspired strong feelings, both positive and negative, and dozens of parodies.
The singer enjoyed tremendous viral success in March with a song that was so silly and simple ("Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend"), it became irresistible fodder for every amateur comedian on Twitter and Facebook.
The song has hit it big, the equation has obviously changed, and the parties are fussing over who owns which rights, which will help determine the slicing of the royalty pie. If the parties don't come to an agreement, only a court's inspection of the contract will settle the matter.
