Church Leaders say they did not give LiL Pump permission to use their school in his new video Gucci Gang, should he take the video down?

December 12, 2017

 The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has said, "In this instance , the location did not follow Archdiocesan filming police and procedure. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles did not approved the content of this video nor it's filming at Blessed Sacrament School, which is school of the Archdiocese and property of The Archdiocese.The Archdiocese has strict filming policies and procedures for all of it's parishes and schools!" They said they will continue to investigate how this was able to happen and what actions they want to take further on the matter. LiL Pump later replied on his Twitter account, "I am on Fox 11 news" in a Tweet. 

 The video has already ranked in over 250,000,000 views on Youtube and has gotten LiL Pump lots of recognition. With him drinking lean, lots of kush and alcohol in the video this goes against the Archdiocese rules and standards. Copyright infringement is the use of works protected by copyright law without permission, infringing certain exclusive rights granted to the copyright holder, such as the right to reproduce, distribute, display or perform the protected work, or to make derivative works. The copyright holder is typically the work's creator, or a publisher or other business to whom copyright has been assigned. Copyright holders routinely invoke legal and technological measures to prevent and penalize copyright infringement.

Copyright infringement disputes are usually resolved through direct negotiation, a notice and take down process, or litigation in civil court. Egregious or large-scale commercial infringement, especially when it involves counterfeiting, is sometimes prosecuted via the criminal justice system. Shifting public expectations, advances in digital technology, and the increasing reach of the Internet have led to such widespread, anonymous infringement that copyright-dependent industries now focus less on pursuing individuals who seek and share copyright-protected content online, and more on expanding copyright law to recognize and penalize – as "indirect" infringers – the service providers and software distributors which are said to facilitate and encourage individual acts of infringement by others.

 Estimates of the actual economic impact of copyright infringement vary widely and depend on many factors. Nevertheless, copyright holders, industry representatives, and legislators have long characterized copyright infringement as "piracy" or "theft" – language which some U.S. courts now regard as pejorative or otherwise contentious.Punishment of copyright infringement varies case-by-case across countries. Convictions may include jail time and/or severe fines for each instance of copyright infringement. In the United States, willful copyright infringement carries a maximum penalty of $150,000 per instance.
