Youtube to Block UK Videos

Many of UK videos has to be blocked by Youtube from later on Monday. Patrick Walker, YouTube’s director of video partnerships, said that it did to reach a new licensing agreement with the Performing Right Society (PRS).

youtubeThe world’s largest video sharing site said PRS for Music, a British collection society that collects royalties on behalf of nearly 50,000 composers, was asking it to pay “many, many times” more than the previous licensing agreement that has expired.

Videos will start to be blocked from 1800 GMT with the majority of them made inaccessible over the next two days.

YouTube pays a licence to the PRS which covers the streaming of music videos from three of the four major music labels and many independent labels.

Consumers must be scratching their heads in amazement at such obstacles to delivering legal content in a timely and straightforward fashion.
