BBC News

As it is now after 1800 GMT in the UK some fo the videos should be inaccesable with the next couple of days being even more noticable.

I've just had a browse for a few big songs and i can still see/hear them so i don't think it's too bad yet.

YouTube and the PRS (performing rights society) were unable to agree on a new licencing agreement deal.

Still not noticed anything.

So YouTube isn't allowed to show pirated content anymore? Shame.

Wasn't that the basis for their business plan?

I was just reading in CNET where MySpace might follow in doing the same

MySpace may follow YouTube by muffling music in the United Kingdom, according to a published report.

MySpace UK, as well as other music services, are struggling to renegotiate licensing deals with the Performance Rights Society, a royalty-collection group in Great Britain.


Apparently Pandora had pulled out first almost a year ago.
