(AllHipHop News) Trouble in paradise.

A production company named Symettrica Entertainment is suing Universal Music Group for pulling clips from their Drake documentary titled "Drake: Re-writing the Rules."

According to reports, Universal’s decision in removing both the music and video "has nothing to do with purported 'copyright infringement,' and everything to do with placating its artist Drake by attempting to suppress any commentary or criticism of Drake."

The documentary first hit Vevo in November before being released on Netflix, iTunes, and Amazon in the new year.

SE claims they got the notice from UMG a day later, which resulted it it being pulled from all streaming platforms.

They believe their footage was fair use and claim they lost a ton of money due to UMG’s ridiculous actions.
