Uh - oh gang. No more music videos on You Tube next year? Warner Music Group and Google are no longer playing nice. Obviously, Warners wants more money to license it's videos and obviously Google is losing money on them. So this seems like an impasse considering that BIG Recording still has no understanding of how the internet works. So Warners' music videos are now coming down from You Tube.
More significantly - Google's musical label contracts with not only Warner Music Group, but it's deals with Sony, BMG, BMI and Universal Music Group ALL will expire in March 2009.
Which means we ought to post a bunch more of them while we still can. Woooooo!
