OPPO Reno12 Series 5G Pre-order


If you’re wondering why #LadyGago, #WEWANTJUSTINBIEBERVEVOBACK and iLcreation were trending on Twitter, it’s because of one incident that some call “hacking”.  For two hours, on August 29th, 2011, the official videos of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga were removed from the Vevo Channel on YouTube. A notice was posted saying ‘This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by iLCreation. Sorry about that.”

Fans of Justin Bieber called “Beliebers” and followers of Lady Gaga called “Little Monsters” were furious of the incident and some believed it was a hack by ilCreation.  Unconfirmed reports say that iLcreation was a 13 year old boy from Pakistan.

Vevo assured the fans that the videos are still there and all that had occurred was merely a copyright claim. YouTube then restored the videos after verifying the ownership of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga of the removed videos.  It appears that what happened was a stunt since the Twitter account of ilCreation now states it was just role playing. is one of the most active tech sites in the Philippines.

  1. It is not hacked. Read the real story here:

    “It sounds so simple- a YouTube user who goes by the name iLCreation
    submitted a copyright claim on each of Bieber’s videos… including the
    “Baby” video which has over 600 MILLION views.

    YouTube has a yank first, ask questions later policy when a copyright
    claim is made – so they simply pulled the videos off the site … until
    the dispute is resolved.

    iLCreation also went after a few Lady Gaga videos – but only a few of her videos are missing in action.

    Bieber’s VEVO channel (a dedicated site for music videos) has been
    completely wiped out for the time being… but a rep for VEVO said,
    “Someone is making false copyright claims against the Justin Bieber and
    Lady Gaga channels and YouTube has blocked access to the videos as a
    result. We are working with YouTube to resolve ASAP.””
