YouTube Ordered to Remove “Illegal” Copyright Blocking Notices

By Andy @ TF





Music collecting society and anti-piracy group GEMA has scored a big victory in its long-running battle with Google-owned YouTube. A court has ordered the video giant to remove blocking messages which claim GEMA is to blame for thousands of videos being unavailable in Germany on copyright grounds.

youtubesadsmallSimply searching for the terms “unavailable in Germany” reveals the scale of the problem. Thousands of complaints, from the man in the street right up to record label bosses, show that the licensing dispute with collecting society/anti-piracy group GEMA has hit in every corner.

It is a complex battle with a simple disagreement at its core. In 2007 the entities reached a licensing agreement for YouTube to use works from GEMA’s extensive repertoire. Two years later negotiations to extend that deal broke down when GEMA’s long-term demand of around €0.12 per stream was rejected by Google.

In May 2010 GEMA sued to have YouTube block certain titles so that they could not be viewed locally. In April 2012 and after much legal wrangling, the Regional Court of Hamburg ruled that YouTube could be held liable for the “infringing” videos and must therefore take measures to render content unavailable in Germany.

And herein lies the problem. YouTube is a constant source of frustration for German users thanks to the blocking of thousands of videos as a result of the GEMA dispute. When local users try to access popular videos being enjoyed by their fellow Internet users (GEMA claims that YouTube overblocks unnecessarily) they are greeted with a message informing them that they should blame GEMA, not YouTube, for the inconvenience.




Time and again, users are informed that videos are blocked due to GEMA not granting the necessary music rights. As a result, GEMA has become very unpopular indeed.

Trying to remedy the situation, GEMA applied for an injunction to force YouTube to change the messages, claiming that they misrepresent the situation and damage GEMA’s reputation. YouTube alone is responsible for blocking the videos, claiming otherwise is simply false, GEMA argued.

Yesterday the District Court of Munich agreed with the music group and issued an injunction to force YouTube to comply, stating that the notices “denigrate” GEMA with a “totally distorted representation of the legal dispute between the parties.” Changing the message to state that videos are not available due to a lack of a licensing agreement between YouTube and GEMA would be more appropriate, the Court said.

“For almost three years, YouTube has misled the public with these blocking messages and unlawfully influenced public opinion at the expense of GEMA,” GEMA CEO Dr. Harald Heker said in a statement.

“The decision sends an important and positive signal: It’s not GEMA preventing the enjoyment of music on the Internet. It seeks merely to license YouTube, like all other music portals. Our concern is that the artists participate in the economic exploitation of their works and can earn a livelihood in the future.”

YouTube parent company Google said it was studying the decision.

“We need to examine the reasons for the judgment, before we can make a decision about what to do next,” a spokesperson said.

Once the judgment of the District Court of Munich is made final, YouTube faces fines of up to 250,000 euros per breach.

Default Re: YouTube Fined for “Illegal” Copyright Notices

this is all BS as well. cause they don't show videos on tv anymore and if they do it's at some stupid ass hour of the morning when no one is up. so you tube is the only way to see it unless you go to the bands or artists official website. hell I was shocked at the music awards when what little of it I watched that an award for best video was even still around! the band barenaked ladies puts their videos on their channel on you tube for example. so does Meatloaf as well. and a number of other artists.

Music YouTube Begins Music Subscriptions

12 November 2014

YouTube Music Key Subscription Service is Unveiled


Leo Kelion, BBC Technology desk editor


Google's YouTube is starting a subscription service that allows users to stream ad-free music videos and to download them for offline use.
The £9.99 monthly fee for Music Key also provides membership to Google Play All Access, the firm's existing "all-you-can-eat" song download facility.
It is set to pose a challenge to Spotify, Rdio, Beats Music and other audio-only "unlimited" music services.

The launch had been delayed by a dispute with independent labels.
However, Google said it had now signed deals with hundreds of indies worldwide.

That has enabled it to include tracks from artists including Billy Bragg, who had previously said YouTube was trying to "strongarm" labels into agreeing to "low rates" by threatening to block their material altogether if they did not take part.




Billy Bragg had been critical of YouTube's negotiating tactics


He told the BBC his music had been included as part of an agreement signed by Merlin - which represents indie labels - but that he had not been informed about the details.
The BBC understands that the terms of the deal state that the more plays a video has, the bigger the share of the subscription pool its publisher receives.





Subscribers can download complete albums, suggested playlists and personal mixes for offline playback


Brad Nevin, chief executive of The Orchard group of indie labels, said he thought the deal struck was both fair and "a phenomenal opportunity".
Digital habits Android devices will be first to be able to save clips, followed by Apple's phones and tablets, but the facility will not extend to PCs yet.
The mobile devices will also be able to continue playing music in the background when they switch to other programs.
In addition to album tracks, Music Key offers downloads of concert recordings, remixes, "unreleased" rarities and cover versions recorded by others.

YouTube describes itself as "the biggest music service on the planet", but Google Play is thought to lag far behind Spotify's 12.5 million paying subscribers.
One expert said the new offer might tempt a number to jump ship.

"If you are someone who only listens to Spotify and doesn't listen to YouTube, this won't be a good enough reason to switch," said James McQuivey, principal analyst at the Forrester Research consultancy.
"There is a certain comfort in the well-established digital habits that people already have.




Spotify offers offline music downloads to PCs and mobiles but does not include videos



"But if you - as many people do - listen to both Spotify and use YouTube for music, then this is genuinely a reason to switch, because you not only have all the unlimited music but also the ability to move from audio to video, which is a very compelling experience."

Those unwilling to pay can still access a new Music home page on

YouTube's apps and web service, which:

  • Makes it easier to find and play albums from beginning to end. The album's cover is displayed for songs without a video clip
  • Can put together a playlist of all an artist's available songs
  • Provides next, previous, shuffle and repeat buttons, to help users switch between songs
  • Highlights trending songs and recommendations based on the user's previous activity

Ten years ago Jawed Karim uploaded the very first video to YouTube.
Titled 'me at the zoo' it lasts only 18 seconds and involves the YouTube co-founder standing in front of elephants at the zoo.
