How to audit a TV show for copyright violations
If you’re a fan of Harry Styles, you’ve probably seen the cast audition for his new TV show.
But this isn’t the first time the popular boy band has been accused of using their fame to illegally distribute copyrighted material.
We asked Harry Styles’ representatives if they knew anything about these accusations, and we received some answers.
First, a bit of background: Styles is a popular singer-songwriter with an impressive following.
He’s a Grammy Award-nominated songwriter and producer who has worked with Kanye West, Drake, and Justin Bieber.
Styles is also the star of the television show Harry Styles and the Pussycats, which airs on the CW.
According to his reps, he’s a regular on Harry Styles auditions and regularly performs on shows like the show, which has been around since 2013.
The Harry Styles audition videos were shot in 2015.
The Pussycat audition videos, meanwhile, were shot a few months later.
This time around, the band has claimed to have taken steps to stop unauthorized copying of the Harry Styles music.
We reached out to Harry Styles representatives to ask about these claims, and they said they could not comment on the authenticity of the videos.
“It’s an incredibly confusing time in the music industry,” said the spokesperson.
“There is no way to get an accurate picture of what’s happening on the show.
As such, we’re taking every step possible to protect our artists and the fans they have.”
Harry Styles spokesperson Michael Whelan told us that the band had reached out multiple times to Warner Bros. and Universal Music to ask for more information about the videos and the unauthorized copying claims, but has not heard back.
We also contacted Universal Music, and the spokesperson told us the band does not comment publicly on “infringement matters.”
“We are aware of this situation and are working with Warner Bros and Universal to address this issue,” said Universal Music spokesperson Amy D’Angelo.
We’ve reached out for comment from Warner Bros, and Warner Bros hasn’t yet responded to our request for comment.
The Warner Bros spokesperson told me that the video on the Harry Sims website doesn’t appear to be from Harry Sims at all, but rather from a member of Harry Sims’ entourage who uploaded it.
Warner Bros says the Warner Sims site is a fake, and that it’s not aware of any unauthorized copies of the Potter series.
We don’t know for sure, however, if Warner Bros or Universal are in fact involved in the Harry-Sims situation, but we’re eager to find out.
