Ethic with Konshens. Gengetone Groups Ethic and Boondocks Gang in trouble as their new video is pulled down from YouTube

Fast-rising Gengetone groups Ethic and Boondocks Gang have been subjected to a major setback after their new video dubbed “Thao” was pulled down from YouTube due to copyright claims.

Pulselive.co.ke understands that the video was pulled down after a company called De Gigz Films launched complaints about the video for using their footage without permission.

If you had watched the “Thao” video you will realize that there was a drone shot at the beginning of the video, which apparently was stolen from a film owned by DeGigz Films.

A search on YouTube says “Video unavailable. This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by De Gigz Films”

This is not Ehtic’s first video to be pulled down from YouTube due to Copyright claims. In August their song “Figa” mysteriously disappeared from YouTube.

It later turned out that, Figa is a copy and paste of the song Cono by Puri ft Jhorrmountain and Adje that was officially uploaded on YouTube, December 9, 2017. The resemblance between the two songs is what caused its deletion from all streaming platforms.

If you are familiar with the music business, then beat sampling is not a new term to you. Producers around the world do beat sampling, as there is no way you can be 100% unique. Ultimately, we are all influenced and inspired by the music we have heard and since there are only seven notes you can use in each key, similarities between songs can't be avoided.

Beat Sampling is Legal around the world, as long as the Producer seeks permission from the owner of the original sound (beat).
