YG Entertainment has revealed that they are still continuing action against singer Derrick Bullock, who had been illegally using the instrumentals for Taeyang‘s “Eyes, Nose, Lips” as his own for his song “Change Me“.
As mentioned before, the singer had claimed that his song was the original and Taeyang’s song had been ‘stolen’ from himself. In response, YG Entertainment had revealed that they were taking action against the singer, and had succeeded in getting his YouTube video removed.
Since then, the singer’s iTunes link for the song has also been taken down, and there will be more to follow as the agency has revealed they’re in the process of getting it removed from all the other various music platforms.
The agency stated, “In the recent past days, we have become aware of Derrick Bullock’s illegal use of our music and after our strong protest towards Derrick Bullock and music distribution sites, the services for his song on YouTube and iTunes have been stopped… In addition to those sites, his song will soon be removed from various other music platforms as well.”
The agency also revealed that Derrick Bullock and the company that handles his YouTube channel had admitted that they had illegally used Taeyang’s song. They told the agency that although they should have gotten permission first, they had mistakenly forgotten, and offered their apology to YG Entertainment.
