YouTube could be forced to pay more money for music

YouTube could be forced to pay more money for music | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Artists and record companies could be allowed to demand more money from websites such as YouTube, under new plans to reform European copyright laws published on Wednesday. The draft could force YouTube and others online video-on-demand sites to actively screen content to check for pirated videos. Other proposals would oblige them to be transparent to performers about how much profit is made from their works to help them negotiate better licensing deals.
Pierre Priot's insight:
Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, weights into the Google vs Record Industry fight "I want journalists, publishers and authors to be paid fairly for their work, whether it is made in studios or living rooms, whether it is disseminated offline or online, whether it is published via a copying machine or hyperlinked on the web."

I think this great that artists are actually being paid for all their hard work. As Cory Gonzalez said "I put no blame on any of these musical search engines ... a system should most definitely be put in place for all streaming sites to provide the deserving pay to those who post the content" I could not have said it any better.

Promusicae, y es que la venta acumulada del presente año asciende a 70,6€ millones de euros, una cifra que representa una mejoría del 10,9% respecto a los 63,6 millones registrados en idéntico período de 2014.
