YouTube: is this a rights grab I see before me?

Here’s why the indie labels and YouTube have fallen out

Tue, Jun 24, 2014, 09:00

   

Digital Music News have got hold of that contentious YouTube contract for indie labels which caused a bit of a kerfuffle last week. Read it and weep, especially the comments which are picking out and highlighting the really iffy clauses in the contract. Those seeking further nuanced analysis should have a look at Billboard’s reading of said contract. Anyone willing to join my YourIndieTube start-up?
