Youtube Blocks Music Videos In Germany

Youtube have now blocked music in Germany as well as the UK after being unable to reach a financial agreement with GEMA, Germany's performance rights organisation.

The UK block has been in effect since March 10 in similar circumstances - talks with PRS failed after the UK organisation demanded higher royalty payments.

The deal between the German, GEMA and Youtube ran out last week and since then have demanded rates 50 times higher than those demanded by PRS.

GEMA say it's through lack of 'transparency' that the deals broke down.

what do you think?

Are the licensing organisations shooting themselves and their artists in the foot or do you think their right to ask for more money on behalf of labels?
