Harlem Shake Creator To Go After FCC Chairman

Engadget reports:

This is a bit ironic. When FCC chairman and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai uploaded a video this week detailing all the things we’ll still be able to do after he killed net neutrality, he apparently forgot one key step: asking permission.

You see, part of the smarmy and glib clip the FCC produced with The Daily Caller has EDM producer Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” in it.

Baauer claims he received no licensing requests for the once-viral track and in a tweet pledged that “I’m taking action. Whatever I can do to stop this loser.”

Many have noted that included among Pai’s dancers in the clip is a notorious promoter of the Pizzagate conspiracy.
