Rotana Terminates Amr Diab's YouTube Channel

YouTube channel of Amr Diab has been removed leaving his fans unable to access his songs hours before releasing his upcoming new album. YouTube message to anyone who tries to access the channel is:
"Amr Diab [Channel] has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted"

This is the second time for Amr Diab to have similar incident. On March 2015, two companies that produced some of his videos had submitted complaints to YouTube proving their rights with documents. According to the Dubai-based AlBawabah, YouTube sent an email warning Amr Diab if songs republished without prior permission from the copyright owners, his entire channel would be deleted from YouTube.

Rotana, Amr Diab's last producer, updated YouTube of court case against Amr to prevent him from releasing his upcoming new album. Based on that, according to FilFan entertainment portal, YouTube terminated the channel.

When our founder was in Dubai to attend a YouTube training program there at Google office, copyrights was a very important topic to be considered by any YouTube channel manager to avoid such incident. It is now clear that financial revenues for an artist or musician can be easily affected by her/his ex-producer.
