(Newser) – Lady Gaga's account is one of the most popular on YouTube but that didn't save it from being suspended for copyright violations yesterday. Before it was reinstated later in the day, a notice said the account had been pulled because of "multiple or severe violations of YouTube's copyright policy," AP reports. The offending clip appears to have been footage from the singer's recent appearance on a Japanese TV show, according to Time Out Tokyo.
