    They'll work something out. With youtube and the like hosting legit materials now, the presedence is there for ways to make things work. Obviously Universal is pissy because they aren't getting the terms they want.

    I find it funny they quote things like lip-sychin' etc. Paraody, etc is covered under fair use, and while they could challenge each piece, in large it is not illegal or violation of copywrite, so they couldn't go after youtube for distributing it.

    Sounds like yet another music industry cornerstone completely not getting it and trying to hold onto 'the old world'.

    I can't wait for the music industry to implode so we can start over again. The empires they built don't fit in today's world and they aren't willing to adapt.

      Universal sueing Myspace (owned by Fox) sounds like a big corporate war that will be very entertaining to watch.

      The Big Four really need to get over themselves, get out from under the rock and realize technology is changing.

        MySPace concerns me for different reasons. The trend lately seems to be posting video'd acts of viloence. Here locally this week's big topic has been with some teenagers attacking and video taping a schoolmate and then posting it on MySpace. This was a brutal attack.

        I also have major issues with the whole predatory aspect of it.

          MySpace is not going to go away. I could care less for YouTube.

            There are more sites out there than Youtube.. just Youtube is the majority right now...

            one day it will be a different site...

            then another...

            Universal should just go with the times... They already make money for the music video off of CD and Single sales...

              My two favorite videos were pulled from YouTube this week. They were the both the song "Wickeder" by Forbidden Broadway with photos inserted, so it wasn't a video, more of a slideshow.

              We were heartbroken around here. There's still a video with the song being lip synched by two girls, but it's just not the same.

                I love youtube! It's the best way for me to watch music videos without signing up for crap and jumping through millions of holes to find the video I want to watch.

                but it's the same thing with the "illegal" P2P programs, something just different enough will come around to replace the "problem" for the big corps and it starts all over again in a vicious cycle. AT least with you tube and MySpace video though, the content can be controlled (deleted by request of a copyright holder)

                You set the bar I could not live up to
                Tonight the light is breaking through
                So thank you very little and send me postcards from hell"

                    I hate MySpace. It can go away any time.
                    Good morning, son
                    In twenty years from now
                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...
