Statewide Pure Michigan singalong video may not return to YouTube
Status Creative, the Grand Rapids-based marketing firm behind the video, says the copyright issues with the song's major record label were resolved, but a secondary copyright holder filed for infringement and asked for compensation, MLive reported.
The Ann Arbor portion of the video was shot at Michigan Stadium and featured 40 members of the University of Michigan Marching Band, 40 cheerleaders and 25 dance team members.
More than 100 people showed up for the Ypsilanti shoot at the water tower on Cross Street to participate in a 5-second clip to be featured in the promotional video.
Status Creative co-founder Rob Bliss told MLive that he's in continuing negotiations with the secondary copyright holder and remains hopeful the issues will be resolved.
