Apparently, Swizzy is the CEO of the file sharing site that allows people to easily share large media files. The catch is, lots of people use Mega-Upload to share stolen music and the music industry has been fighting against file sharing, accusing the services Mega-Upload offers of supporting piracy.
The NY Post’s Page Six is reporting that Swizzy convinced Diddy, Kanye West, and Will.i.am into promoting Mega-Upload by appearing in a “Mega Song” video promoting the site’s file sharing capabilities. Universal Music Group didn’t like that too much, and they issued a “take-down notice” to YouTube, saying the artists’ performances were unauthorized.
