According to the information provided by YouTube, the creators of the successful song are asking the court to prevent "any person or group acting in concern" from removing and/or deleting their YouTube account and song. Additionally, the injunction is meant to avoid any future copyright or ownership conflicts for their songs "Iianga" and "Fireworks" with any other digital streaming service, such as Spotify, iTunes, or Deezer. This is one of the goals of the injunction.
Blaq Diamond said in court that as a result of its tracks being removed over and over again, the company is incurring ongoing financial losses. This is a result of the fact that Qoma and its associated YouTube channel are expected to be removed from YouTube for good on November 1st. The pair claims that they make around thirty thousand rand (R30 000) per month from each streaming network. Additionally, they said the following:
"The opportunity to collect these royalties has been irretrievably lost due to the fact that the takedowns are still active and our music is now being prevented from being played in violation of the law... Sincerely, I would like to advise that anybody who deletes or attempts to have our account deleted, taken down, or removed from YouTube is arbitrarily infringing on our rights to promote our creative arts, which are the source of our income."
