Warner Music and YouTube Make New Deal

2 10 2009

Back in December 2008, Warner Music Group pulled its music from YouTube when the two parties could not reach agreement on a new licensing arrangement. The agreements between YouTube and the major record labels apply to official and unofficial videos, so that move affected regular users who uploaded videos containing Warner Music songs. Those users received takedown notices, and a lot of them were not happy about it. Many created and uploaded protest videos aimed mostly at Warner Music and to some extent at Google for not being able to nail down an agreement.

On Tuesday, YouTube announced on its blog that Warner’s music will be returning to YouTube thanks to a new agreement. YouTube’s statement said that this “new, multi-year global agreement . . . covers the full Warner catalog and includes user-generated content containing WMG acts.”\
