    YouTube beauty blogger/vlogger Michelle Phan, whose makeup tutorial channel enjoys a whopping 6.5 million subscribers, has a legal headache on her well-manicured hands. Phan is being sued by Ultra Records and Ultra International Music Publishing for copyright infringement.

    Basically, Phan, who is believed to have pocketed $5 million last year, used music by Ultra artists in her makeup videos without paying the proper licensing fees for that usage.

    Ultra reps some of the biggest, hottest names in EDM --Steve Aoki, Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris, and David Guetta, to name a select few. The label is suing Phan for using the music in her videos, from which she profits.

    Phan was allegedly told that she needed to obtain a license in order to use the songs into her videos, but apparently she did not comply.

    Team Ultra or Team Phan?
