YouTube May Lose Content Because of Dispute Over Subscription Deals

Irving Azoff, who represents a number of popular musicians as diverse as George and Ira Gershwin and Pharrell Williams, says YouTube hasn't obtained proper licensing for its new services. Mr. Azoff says he is ready to make his clients' works unavailable to YouTube users until the company, owned by Google, makes the proper arrangements. Like artist Taylor Swift, Mr. Azoff is arguing that current royalty payment arrangements for streamed music are not high enough to compensate artists. Eriq Gardner covers the issue in depth here for The Hollywood Reporter.
