YouTube Blocks Music Videos From UK Site

YouTube Pulls Music Videos in the UK: Do You Care?

Music made available on the Internet always seems to draw fire somehow, and unfortunately for the music obsessed across the pond, attempts to renew YouTube's license agreement with the UK's Performing Right Society have come to a fast halt. According to YouTube, the "PRS is now asking us to pay many, many times more for our license than before. The costs are simply prohibitive for us — under PRS's proposed terms we would lose significant amounts of money with every playback," and have since blocked all music videos in the UK until an agreement is reached.


Although I think it's fun to send old music videos to my pals, I don't really watch music videos anymore at all. Do you still get your music video fix from TV, or do you head for YouTube? Do you even care if music videos are on YouTube?
