YouTube stripped away two billion video views from the biggest record companies after the site cracked down on alleged fake viewers. The biggest losers were Universal and Sony.
From The ArticleThe dramatic cuts came as YouTube conducted a crackdown on fake views, but music industry sources have blamed it on housekeeping related to the migration of their videos across different channels. The unprecedented move left Universal with just five videos on the site - none of which were music - and Sony with just three.

Ummm...
