    surely it's just the songs that the agencies/artists/record companies have on their youtube channels as they are the only ones getting money for it?

    like this >>>http://www.youtube.com/user/leonalewis

    and the blocking is only to UK users, not a global ban of all UK produced music

    A PRS spokesman was talking about 'most performing musicians earning only about 10k a year' which may well be true....but the 'improved' deal with YouTube would hardly benefit those low earners anyway being as the PRS only covers the major labels.

    Smaller name lower-earning artists benefit more from the exposure YouTube gives them rather than losing out on royalties (which they more than likely wouldn't get anyway).

    if it was only a 30 sec clip things may be looked at different but considering it full length (low quality or not) its full length and with handheld units on the high street that play such files then i see that the PRS have a bloody valid point ..

    You may be a dedicated follower of music but lets face it , what fupping right do you have placing a full length version of a mp3 dubplate etc on to youtube for the world to see n hear ... people still think because a file is LOW QUALITY it gives them the right to break copyright laws and do what the fup they like with others music ...

    Now within dance music itself theres lots of ghey areas anyway but with the exsplosion of the net in sharing files etc etc you can understand that artists themselves,record labels and the governing bodies of the music industry are trying to get some control back ....

    Yes youtube has its positive points but its has some ingredable negative angles to it too and im not just talking about music there ....

    anyway thats my 2pence on the subject
