Romney YouTube Ad Pulled Following Copyright Claim

President Barack Obama released ad critical of Mitt Romney‘s singing skills recently. Romney reciprocated not long after, ridiculing the president singing “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green. Unfortunately for Romney, his ad’s been pulled from YouTube due to a copyright claim.

The video became unavailable on Monday, with viewers seeing the following error message: “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by BMG_Rights_Management.”

The Romney campaign begged to differ. A spokesperson responded, “Our use was 100% proper, under fair use, and we plan to defend ourselves.”

Oh, this campaign cycle.
