Interesting what you read sometimes. Logic fight!
That YouTube Uk video pulling rights thing that starts tonight?
Yes it’s all YouTube’s fault, they are teh evil and deserve a quick thrashing:
The body, which represents music publishers, added: “Google has told us they are taking this step because they wish to pay significantly less than at present
oh not it isn’t, it’s PRS’s fault, they are teh evil and deserve a quick thrashing:
Mr Walker told BBC News the PRS was seeking a rise in fees “many, many factors” higher than the previous agreement.
Hmm they can’t BOTH be right can they? Whatever happens I’d not piss on either if they were on fire…PRS are evil and have cease and desisted me back in the day; YouTube pulls my videos. Die.
Really despite the articles online slanting against YouTube it does look like that old 1-2 ‘it’s shiny! it’s on t’internets! WAH I WANT MORE MONEY, FATHER!’ scam again. Looks like YouTube doesn’t want to play ball. Looks like I hate both of them.
There really is space for a decent video site with a lot more users that doesn’t attack it’s userbase – but then again bodies like PRS are the problem and not the ‘squish squish darling’ emotional ‘why don’t you think of the poor starving artists’ drama they make out. Very few artists make anything from their work, partly because of the byzantine and labyrinthine organisations like this wasting their money on playing one-upmanship games with YouTube, or pestering bloggers and mashup artists like that old wascal get-off-your-milk-and-drink-your-horse Web Sh3rrif. So the next one will have the same problems too, as people migrate, comes successful and like radio the industry tries to destroy it. Really we need to change the law to make modern-day copyright pedants like this history. They help no-one, least of all the artist.
Can you hear that Fergal?
