Coke Studio is facing a rocky situation these days.

Coke Studio Season 12

This season of Coke Studio has been a rough one, with two songs being flagged down for copyrights issues. After the issue with “Saaiyan“, you’d have thought they’d work things out on other tracks with similar complications.

Coke Studio Season 12 finds itself in the middle of another copyright controversy. Now Sanam Marvi’s first song for the season “Hairaan Hua” has been taken down by YouTube days after it’s release.


Here’s Why Coke Studio’s “Saiyaan” Was Taken Down From YouTube and Facebook

According to the message displayed by Youtube on the Twitter link;

“The video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Abida Parveen.”

Meanwhile, Abrarul Haq’s remake of his iconic “Billohas also been removed over a ‘copyright claim by Karman Entertainment Limited‘. Since Abrar-ul-Haq is the creator of the original “Billo” this copyright claim might be contestable.

Coke Studio Season 12 Copyrights Controversy

This season of Coke Studio seems plagued by copyright issues. Previously, Shuja Haider and Rachel Viccaji’s “Saaiyanwas not released on YouTube due to copyright issues.

It was EMI Pakistan who came forward, staking their claim on the rights to the Noor Jehan classic. Even with Shuja Haider’s grandfather being one of the song’s original creators, EMI Pakistan stopped the song from being aired.

Later they resolved the matter, and worked it out in a legal way. The song was then released.

Regardless of the fixes, these experiences have left a bitter aftertaste. Fans and listeners are quite upset with the latest developments.

Audiences question how something as important as copyrights was overlooked.

Most fans were excited about the return of Rohail Hyatt to Coke Studio. Now they blame him for the issues.

Some still rushed to Rohail Hyatt’s defense.

Some of us would like to assume this a really bad practical joke.
