[News] Copyrights Cartel Attacks the Internet and Current Copyright Law

Hash: SHA1

,----[ Quote ]
| They earn millions and the extent of their diva-esque demands is often mind 
| boggling. But tomorrow, Robbie Williams, KT Tunstall and the members of 
| Radiohead will join a group of high-profile musicians to protest at how badly 
| they are treated by record companies and music streaming websites like 
| YouTube.     


Fight Over YouTube Videos Heats Up In The UK; Musician Propaganda Begins

| The very fact that the musicians are so up in arms shows how much more 
| leverage Google has. It shows that a significant part of the value is in 
| YouTube. YouTube can survive just fine without the music videos. The 
| musicians, on the other hand, are suffering. That's why it's the musicians

| has the leverage here, not the musicians. And, yet, the musicians still want 
| to pretend it's the other way around.

88% of YouTube is New and Original Content, Professor Says

| If you can watch it without dropping your litigation against YouTube, Viacom,
| you need to see a doctor right away. Seriously. I hope YouTube lawyers play
| it for the judge if you insist on going to trial.
| Watch the part about the song that ended up being professionally released. It
| made the company some money. Cluestick: there is more than one business
| model, for those who can get with the new. Sooner or later, your shareholders
| will be furious with you if you don't course-correct and modernize. Yes. They
| will. Eventually, your shareholders will be YouTubers, you know. And you'll
| be what media used to be.
