The 'Baby' video is no longer available on YouTube due to a copyright claim by MJJ Productions. Apparently Michael Jackson's production company feels like the “Baby” video plagiarizes Michael's “The Way You Make Me Feel” video.
IMO, if they wanted to block every video based/inspired by MJ they had to act more often. I'd like to konw what was the reason...?MJJNews: So apparently it's because MJJ Productions claims "Baby" plagiarizes MJ's “The Way You Make Me Feel” video!
I don't get how in the world that could be a copy of The Way You Make Me Feel? Boy chases girl...? That has been in other videos too..
^^What he said . I read the title and I was like "YEAH MICHAEL! GO ON WIT UR BAD SELF!!"
I still dont understand how in the world mjjc productions would think its like the "TWUMMF" video...its nothing like it at all!
I mean ok the boy chases girl thing but its compelety different
You think so? What is substantially different apart from the location? There are even direct MJ references in there like the Moonwalk/side slide and some indirect references like the man putting his thumbs up (MJ) vs. the man clapping (JB) and MJ jumping on a car vs. JB jumping on a pool table etc. Plus the whole concept of the video is taken from TWYMMF (JB even admitted this himself while shooting behind the scenes for Baby) so I can see why MJJP saw it as a copyright infringement... I don't think MJ would have ever agreed with taking the video down though, on the contrary I think he would be honoured that a popular young artist is inspired by his music videos
Well #1 jb is much younger
#2 they are mostly in the arcade place, where as mj & tat are mostly ouside in the streets.
Well if JB said that it was taken from "TWUMMF" video..wouldnt that mean he pretty much did breach the copyright infringement??
The fact that he's younger shouldn't matter in this context, and #2 well yeah that's why I said ""apart from the location"
I don't know if he literally said it was "taken" from the TWYMMF video (I'm just paraphrasing) but he did say something like he was inspired by it, or it had the same 'feel' etc. At least according to JB fans' comments on the video, I don't watch his interviews myself lol.
