Music on You Tube

Recommended Posts

Here is a an article on the fight between You Tube and WMG. http://tech.yahoo.com/news/nm/20090720/tc_nm/us_warnermusic_youtube_3

There is hope that there will be peace in the valley someday and us kite videographers won't be on the short end of the stick.

While there certainly is some hope in an article like this, my worry is what they are negotiating is simply music vidoes by the artists themselves over where other people use music for other purposes. But, it's bear watching close and thanks for the update.

I was just checking my YouTube videos and a couple more were idicated as having "Copyright Info". Checked them out and they played. Both had music owned by Sony. The info only told me that they were owned by Sony and I noticed that both were block from MP4 download. This seems very fair. My policy is not use WMG music but use Sony music. Not only that there was a pop that allowed you to buy the music on Amazon. What a great way to handle the problem. Hooray for Sony. I bet they sell a lot of music this way and we get to use their fine music in showing off our kiting prowess.

Just saw this http://tech.yahoo.com/news/ap/20090929/ap_on_hi_te/us_warner_music_group_youtube

LOS ANGELES - YouTube said Tuesday that music videos from Warner Music Group Corp. will return to the video site in the coming months after a nine-month dispute over splitting ad revenue.

In reading the article it looks like things will come out ok for everyone, including us kite balleters.

I was just checking out a video that I had posted on YouTube that had muted because of the WMG Google fight. This was of Reid Walcott at Summer Heat. They took the mute off. So I think the problem is now solved. Here is the video of Reid flying in MIB to Robert Buble singing Feeling Good.

He took 1st.

Enjoy and post those videos.

John

PS. You might check others that have been muted.
