Rolling Stone profiled how Rebecca Black and her mother Georgina Marquez Kelly are accusing ‘Friday’ producers Ark Music Factory of copyright infringement and unlawful exploitation of publicity rights. Black’s lawyer Brian Schall alleges Ark has been using her likeness and created an unauthorized ‘Friday’ ringtone.
Ark Music Factory founder Patrice Wilson responded to the allegations by telling Rolling Stone: “I have met with Rebecca Black’s mom and everything is fine. She will get the masters and the song. They can have it all.”
