Copyright scammers stole R374 million in YouTube music royalties

Two scammers in the US made fake copyright claims on songs uploaded to YouTube for around four years and pocketed $23 million (R374.62 million) in royalties for Latin music rights they did not control, Billboard reports.

The pair — Jose Medina Teran and Webster Batista Fernandez — operated a local recording studio called Digitlog in Phoenix, Arizona.
