The music industry generated 2 billion fake video views on YouTube

Sony/BMG’s was hit the hardest with views dropping from a total of more than 850 million to just 2.3 million. RCA declined by 159 million views to a total of 120 million. Universal lost more than 1 billion views and now stands below 6 billion. Google confirmed that the companies violated its terms of services, which prohibits users from artificially inflating video views. Google noted that the view stripping was “an enforcement of [the company’s] viewcount policy”.
