BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA) — Questions are being raised about whether law enforcement in Beverly Hills are playing music while being filmed by activists in a purported effort to activate copyright filters on social media sites when those videos are shared online.
Instagram is one of such platforms that has a piracy rule in place, preventing certain videos from being shared on the site.
“This is a form of assaulting free speech.
He’s playing copyrighted music,” Devermont said.
The police officer was heard saying, “I can’t hear you,” while Devermont asked him to turn down the music.
Devermont records the police frequently and shares videos on his Instagram account, which has more than 300,000 followers.
The Beverly Hills Police Department did not have an answer about why the officer was playing music during the interaction with Devermont but said they are investigating. »
