I think it's interesting that the video was taken down for "copyright infringement", but that Megaupload claims to hold the copyright for it. As I understand it, the record companies are abusing their rights with the complaints of copyright infringement.

It's a copyright infringement because those artists are owned by the illuminati

So they went on camera, while being paid to rave about a site, but didn't intend for it to become public in a video?

scroll to the bottom of the page

interestingly enough, if these laws pass, me posting that link would have just made AP a rogue site and susceptible to being shut down

Don't know if you're calling me dumb, but clearly it was a half-joke. If it's UMG, which owns Def Jam, then Kanye is under their umbrella. MV or whoever probably interviewed him, he raved about it and they put it on there. Then the record company probably balked at it, not Kanye, and said that whole thing. Either him or will.i.am.
