Twitch streamers and YouTube creators have been found to be carrying out terrible a capella covers of famous songs in hilarious ways to get around YouTube’s largely criticized copyright strike system. In the recent period, YouTube creators were pushed into copyright problems while creating TikTok reaction videos. In these videos, they gather cringey TikTok clips and either respond to or provide comments on them. However, those TikTok videos include music from artists signed to labels such as Warner and Sony. And those labels are supposed to issue copyright claims, stopping creators from monetizing their videos.
To work around this issue, creators such as Kurtis Conner and Danny Gonzalez have initiated to replace the music with their own singing. Conner and Gonzalez half-heartedly sing songs such as Imagine Dragons’ “Believer” and Linkin Park’s “In The End” while the related TikTok video plays on screen.
