WARNER MUSIC GROUP STRIKES DEAL WITH YOUTUBE

Pitchfork

Back in December, a breakdown in negotiations led Warner Music Group to pull all its music from YouTube, which has seriously damaged our ability to hear any song ever just by typing it into YouTube’s search engine. (Warner artists like Death Cab for Cutie weren’t too thrilled about it, either.) But now Advertising Age reports that Warner and YouTube have completed a deal to allow the label’s music back on the site (via Rolling Stone). So: We’ll no longer have to hit up MySpace or DailyMotion or OnSmash or any of the other bajillions of video websites to watch Warner music videos! According to Advertising Age, Warner is also in talks to join Vevo, the music video site that YouTube and Universal Music Group are planning to launch.
