WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter has deleted a video reproduced by US President Donald Trump and said it took this action after receiving a complaint from the copyright holder.
The video, which includes music from the Linkin Park band, disappeared from the president’s Twitter account late on Saturday with a notification saying “This media has been disabled due to a notification from the copyright owner.”
Twitter deleted the Trump video, which was republished by White House social media director Dan Scafino, after it received a copyright-based notice from Machine Shop Entertainment, according to Lumen’s database of requests to remove material over the Internet.
The Machine Shop is owned by the rock band Linkin Park, according to its Linkedin page.
“We respond to the proper copyright complaints that the copyright owners or their authorized representatives send us,” a Twitter representative said in an e-mail statement.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
