YouTube plans to host "every music video" ever made

updated 12:35 pm EDT, Wed August 16, 2006

YouTube Music Videos

YouTube has earned a decidedly mixed reputation based on its largely neutral approach to user-submitted videos. As a home for amateur video, few would doubt its claim as the unquestioned champion: the company pride itself on the knowledge that 60% of Internet videos are now seen through YouTube. The ease of uploading videos, however, has virtually ensured that pirated material appears on the company's pages despite almost constant cooperation with providers who want their ads and shows removed. This may change soon, says YouTube co-founder Steve Chen. Negotiations are currently underway with major labels to provide as many music videos as possible legitimately and for free to all users - with the ultimate goal of cataloging all music videos ever made. The deal will ideally take between 6 to 18 months to complete and should establish YouTube as a rival not just to Google Video, but also music TV stations such as MTV.
