YouTube to start removing videos with indie label music (Radiohead included)

June 18, 2014 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Photo by EOSHD The relationship between record labels and the internet is in a tense state of affairs.

However there is a worrying trend of some recording artists who look negatively at their work being used in non-commercial films without prior permission – they are missing the spirit of what creativity is, and the opportunities afforded by the internet.
