Calvin Harris

UK electropop artist Calvin Harris took on the BPI (often called the British version of the RIAA) after they deleted a YouTube video of his song, which he uploaded himself, for alleged copyright infringement.

In a collected series of tweets:

It’s the fucking BPI. FUCK YOU ‘The BPI’ what have you ever done for anybody you useless shower of cunts. . . Fantastic use of time combating piracy by removing my own videos, what a fucking revelation. Fuck the Torrent sites, this is the way forward. . . I’m going to drive my car into the big window in the BPI’s offices on my way to the studio this morning . . . [later] Ok I got a bit caught up in the heat of the moment.

And in a second quote:

The BPI are the worst organisation to ever walk the earth, and their set-up is shambolic, and their online employees are all massive retards. This is unbelievable, and it seems I am completely powerless to do anything. Sony have done nothing, the BPI have done nothing.

Later, the video was put back up and the fiasco over.
