As any music fan knows, “cover” videos are huge on YouTube and Facebook and at least as to the former, many artists actually started their careers that way. But as one singer found out, covering an Ed Sheeran song could trigger Facebook to suspend your account. Just ask London resident Charlotte Campbell. Campbell posted a video on YouTube about how Facebook suspended her for three days after posting a snippet of an Ed Sheeran cover song. That got the attention of Sheeran himself who actually apologized over the incident.

Facebook’s response is that it is apparently in talks with the music industry to resolve these types of situations.
