Janet Jackson is encouraging fans to remain posting short clips from her concerts on web 2 . 0, despite a whole new report suggesting her management team has put a strict lockdown on shared Instagram videos.
Fans told the New York Post on Wednesday (21Oct15) photos and 15 second videos from Jackson’s current Unbreakable tour ended up being removed from the favorite mobile app “without warning,” and perhaps, entire accounts ended up being suspended.
According to multiple users, they received emails from Instagram chiefs explaining the media have been removed as “a alternative reported how the content violates their copyright.”
After news spread and angry fans stormed social networking to report the controversy, the Control singer loved Twitter and assured fans she appreciates their enthusiasm for sharing moments from her concerts online.
“Hey all of you, I have been listening,” she wrote. “I love and appreciate my fans. I want you to recognise that I enjoy watching the short videos of how you might be Burning It Up on the Unbreakable shows. Please keep posting them.
“My team is interested in protecting the intellectual property we have been creating for that tour and possible future projects. It was never their intention, functioning on my behalf, to have web 2 . 0 accounts removed. Permitting the utilization of long clips does present a contractual problem for these particular projects. I hope you understand. I trust the fans makes use of their short recordings for his or her own memories also to share on their social networking networks of.
“I have asked my team to improve their approach and permit you to engage socially with such videos,” she concluded. “I know I may not be here with no love I climb onto.”
Bosses at Instagram also released an argument explaining a few of the account deletions were an error and they are focusing on fixing the bugs, but you are standing firm around the decision to get rid of material as requested.
Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour continues until June 2016.
