Bad Bunny sues FAN for posting concert footage on YouTube

24

Bad Bunny is mad at a fan whom he claims posted unauthorized concert footage on a YouTube account and now he’s suing the dude.

Details of The Lawsuit

According to a new lawsuit obtained, Bad Bunny claims a man named Eric Guillermo Madronal Garrone posted full song performances on the YouTube channel he runs, MADforliveMUSIC.

Bad Bunny claims Garrone went to his Feb. 21 concert in Salt Lake City, Utah and recorded multiple videos of his live performance, uploading the footage to Garrone’s YouTube channel.

Bad Bunny says he owns the rights to the live performance music and Garrone did not have his authorization or consent to record and post them online for people to watch for free.

Bad Bunny says Garrone is using the famous singer’s name and music to draw eyeballs to the YouTube channel, thus taking views and ad revenue away from Bad Bunny’s own official YouTube page.

Bad Bunny Didn’t File The Lawsuit At First

In the docs, Bad Bunny says he tried to issue standard takedown notices under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act — also known as DMCA — demanding YouTube remove Garrone’s videos.

Bad Bunny claims YouTube took down the videos but Garrone filed a counterclaim to get them back up leaving him no choice but to file the lawsuit.

As it is, some digging was made and we found the YouTube channel Bad Bunny has beef with and it seems all the videos of his song performances are deleted for now except for this video of the concert orchestra that opened for Bunny that night there in SLC.

The Length of Footage

Clearly, Garrone had a great view at the show and some high-quality camera equipment and this orchestra footage runs 9 minutes in the YouTube upload.

If Garrone was shooting/posting similar videos for the rest of Bad Bunny’s concert — as Bunny claims — it seems a lot different than just uploading a cell phone video of the show to social media as millions of people do.

In fact, lots of shorter clips of his concert from that evening are up on TikTok — but none of them are all that lengthy.

Now, Bad Bunny wants an injunction barring Garrone from posting the footage online, plus either a flat $150,000 for each of the videos posted or any actual damages Bad Bunny can show he suffered from the postings.
