Youtube Is About to Do to Record Labels What Amazon Does to Publishers



Pretty much as Amazon has demonstrated that there are outcomes for distributers and motion pictures that disappoint them, Google's Youtube is going to toss its impressive weight at the starved and debilitated music industry.

Youtube is get ready to expel music features from free record marks that declined to join the feature site's new music administration.
