I think this has been going on for at least a month now, but I am just now becoming fully aware of the shit that hath been going on over at YouTube. Apparently the deuchebags over a Warner Music Group (WMG) were all “give us mo’ money!” And YouTube was like, “mo’ money mo’ problems.” So WMG started pulling their content from the website.
This would be mildly aggravating if they were just pulling music videos or something to that effect. But, sadly, that is not the case. It seems like any content that could in any way contain something that WMG owns is getting muted. So, for example, some videos of Rock Band DLC have had their audio tracks removed. Or, and this is where it really hurts, What’s With The Fifties. I guess they own “Great Balls of Fire.” Never again will viewers around the world get to hear the first half of that special video.
This whole concept is quite terrifying, I mean, what if more labels follow suit? What if shit gets so serious that anything that possibly violates a copyright gets pulled? It would completely destroy YouTube. I don’t want that. I like YouTube. I go there like every day.
So, in conclusion, fuck you WMG. Fuck you hard. You’re killing creativity, the Internet, and freedom of speech. Or something like that.
