YouTube signs deal to get Warner music videos

YouTube Warner Videos

Many thought YouTube ambitious when it declared that it would catalog every music video ever made in its massive collection. Nevertheless, the video host's efforts have borne fruit today by means of a deal signed with Warner Music. The agreement will see videos by major artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers appear legally on the site; the music label intends to take advantage of the deal by using it to distribute interviews and original content. User-submitted content, often cited as the key to YouTube's success, will be able to use Warner artists' music legally without fees or common legal barriers. The move is likely to pave the way for similar developments in the near future.
