YouTube Pulls The Original Rickroll Video

Really? Really Sony BMG? After over 30 million views you just now decided to make YouTube pull Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” for a terms of use violation? If you were going to try to stop rickrolling, couldn’t you have at least done it a couple years ago?

Do you know what’s going to happen now? People are going to be rickrolling other people as much as possible using illicit streams as a protest all day. Thanks, arseholes. Thanks. [Neowin]

Update: Via Ken Fisher, here’s why Sony BMG pulled the original video.
