Craze Digital, also known as Craze Productions, is a digital film and music distributor and independent record label based in London and founded in 2004 by Sam Kleinman (former manager of the European "BCM" records). Craze officially distributed Hip hop albums of some of the genre's leading artists - Rev Run, Warren G, Usher and others. As of November 2016, the company have almost 3,000 videos uploaded on DailyMotion, none of which have any notices linking them to their copyright owners.[1] Between 2009 and July 2011 Craze’s 2,000-odd YouTube uploads were seen by a large number of people, prior to having their channels closed down.[1]


In July 2011, Craze Productions sued YouTube/Google in the Los Angeles Superior Court concerning payment of advertising revenues, asking for over $2 million in potentially unpaid monies.[1] Numerous smaller claims by Craze against individuals have been similarly unsuccessful.

In September 2011, the lawsuit was dismissed.[2] Numerous smaller claims by Craze against individuals have been similarly unsuccessful.

In December 2013 and January 2017, Craze illegally distributed the back catalogue of American R&B singer Aaliyah onto digital download and streaming services, including the iTunes Store and Spotify.[3][4] Craze Productions was sued and ordered to remove the album.[5]
