Ultra Records Responds to Michelle Phan & Kaskade Copyright Controversy

By Scott T. Sterling

Last week, Youtube fashion celebrity Michelle Phan was hit with a lawsuit for copyright infringement over the use of the label’s music in some of Phan’s wildly popular video clips.

With Kaskade being one of the artists prominently featured in the lawsuit, both Phan and Kaskade responded, with Phan claiming through lawyers that she had full permission to use the music, going on to add that Phan’s popularity helped promote the label and “showcased [them] to an international audience.”

Kaskade showed his support of Phan in the lawsuit with a series of tweets, letting it be known that he was not part of the suit and that he’s a fan of the makeup tutorial star.
