What's Happening In Your World
. YouTube has cracked down on the number of views some of your favorite pop artists have on the video sharing network. Music videos from some of the largest record labels have been removed for violation of YouTube’s Term of Service, Item 4, Section H, which bans artificially inflating view counts. The crackdown was widely discussed on Black Hat World, a popular forum that visitors use to exchange advice on unethical search engine optimization techniques. Many are questioning whether or not record label executives purchased the services of hackers who are skilled at building SEO via unethical practice. A senior level label executive told  Billboard Magazine  that since a plethora of their videos have been moved to Vevo, the views acquired on their dedicated label channels were taken away in YouTube’s ‘clean up’. Major record labels lost over two billion YouTube views after the Google-owned company cut down on fake viewers. Universal suffered the most, losing a total of one billion views. Sony weighed in at 2nd place, losing 850 million views in one day. After the massive clean-up, Universal was left with five videos on the site — none of which were music — and Sony was left with three videos. “ This was not a bug or a security breach. This was an enforcement of our viewcount policy ,” YouTube announced. Do you believe record labels employed hackers/programmers to increase their views?
