Record Labels In Germany Learning That YouTube Has The Leverage
from the no-more-videos dept
Of course, the record labels recognize this implicitly -- otherwise they would be happy that their music videos were pulled down. If they didn't recognize the benefit from YouTube, why would they complain at all? The problem, it seems, is more psychological. The record labels know they benefit from the music being on YouTube -- but they also know that Google benefits. Rather than realizing there can be relationships where both sides benefit and everyone is better off, the labels seem to feel that only they should really benefit, and thus, Google should have to pay out all (or most) of its benefit.
