Industry Uneasy With YouTube Craze


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what the fear is with really low quality imagery and sound. If anything this is killer free advertising.


Bootleg footage from concerts by top artists such as the Rolling Stones, U2 and Franz Ferdinand are available by the thousands along with recordings of pop videos and band interviews. A simple keyword search can unearth a wealth of classic clips featuring Kate Bush, Jimi Hendrix, The Smiths and Take That.

read a fun article a few weeks back calling it the new Napster

free advertising it is... but if you make money selling the music, as well as by suing people who share the music, all the more money right?

The Smiths - The Queen is Dead Live 1986

yay, I be agreeing... saying that anyone getting upset about it is a selfish greedy... just an excuse to sue someone to get a slice of their pie, even though they already gots lots of pie... some people want all the pie

guess if you have lawyers, you have to find something for them to do

You Tube is an amazing marketing tool in favor of the recording industry... how many 14 year olds would get mystified by The Smiths or Kate Bush without it? (or hear about them in CNN clips about the industry complaining about You Tube)
