Michelle Phan and Kaskade Fire Back at Ultra Records’ Lawsuit, Bond Over Twitter

Yesterday (July 21), we reported on EDM label Ultra Records filing suit against popular Youtube star Michelle Phan for copyright infringement, claiming that she’d used the label’s music in her makeup tutorial videos that have amassed millions of views.

Former Ultra artist Kaskade was mentioned as being among the producers whose music had been used without authorization.

Now both Phan and Kaskade have fired back at Ultra Records, with the makeup celebrity claiming that she had full authority to utilize the music in her clips. Kaskade has gone on to offer Phan his full support.

According to TMZ, Phan’s lawyers stated that Ultra gave Phan full permission to use the songs, and that the clips have helped promote the label and “showcased [them] to an international audience.”
