YouTube in 'landmark' music deal

Someone seems to have their head screwed on for a change:

YouTube in 'landmark' music deal (source: BBC News)

Video-sharing site YouTube has signed a deal with media giant Warner Music to allow its material to be used legally.

It means interviews and videos by Warner's artists can be used in return for a slice of advertising revenue.

The agreement also covers the use of material in homemade videos, which form a large part of YouTube's content...

I am impressed. This is a big audio company, from America no less, who's actually chosen to not go DRM-mad over something. Hopefully the others will follow suit.
