Filming police officers in the course of their duties has started to become quite commonplace. Sometimes it’s morons trying to wind them up and bait them into doing something stupid, but often it’s simply people trying to record the other side of the story. After all most police around the world wear bodycams these days. So, why not?
Well, according to Vice, police in Beverly Hills have resorted to playing copyrighted music while they’re being filmed in order to trip social media copyright filters to get videos automatically taken down as soon as they’re uploaded. Licensing issues with the music also prevent these videos from getting any news media attention they might deserve, too.
