Music Producers Back Indies In Battle Against YouTube

Friday, July 25th, 2014

StudioThe Music Producers Guild (MPG) has put its support behind independent record labels in their battle against YouTube. In recent weeks, indie labels have been publicly battling with YouTube because, the labels say, the video streaming giant is trying to impose an unfavourable contract on indie labels regarding the use of their music on YouTube’s to-be-launched music streaming service.

In a statement, MPG says, “Independent record producers everywhere, in common with recording artists, rely upon the income from sales and streaming of music files, the production of which they have been responsible, often with little or no credit (itself ironic in this digital age). Attempts by international media conglomerates to throttle negotiation and impose unfavourable and unjust terms upon independent record companies, whom they perceive to be ‘small fry’ and thus ‘fair game,’ should be opposed at every opportunity.”
