UMG faces a lawsuit over an authorized Drake documentary that surfaced earlier this year. The producers of a documentary about Drake are reportedly suing Universal Music Group for having their flick pulled from streaming services. His documentary producers are taking the major record label to court for having their doc pulled from streaming services. Symettrica Entertainment produced the unauthorized documentary film titled Drake: Re-Writing the Rules in November of 2018. Afterwards they say UMG send a notice asking them to remove all Drake’s music and video. The unauthorized documentary on Drake dropped on Vevo in November before it made its way onto Netflix, iTunes, and Amazon on Jan. 16th.
According to what TMZ reported on Friday (Feb. 15). According to the suit, the company believes UMG wants to silence critical opinions of the world-famous rapper saying the label’s action, “has nothing to do with purported ‘copyright infringement,’ and everything to do with placating its artist Drake by attempting to suppress any commentary or criticism of Drake.”
For your own clarity, Drake is not involved in this lawsuit, only UMG
