WARNER MUSIC, YOUTUBE STILL TALKING ON DEAL

Billboard.biz
Warner Music Group is still in talks with video sharing site YouTube to license its artists’ music videos even after all its major rivals have renewed their deals. EMI Music, the smallest of the big four music labels, quietly renewed its deal with YouTube in February after Sony Music Entertainment and ahead of Vivendi’s Universal Music Group. Universal Music renewed its deal with YouTube and announced a wider plan to partner with YouTube to create a stand-alone music video website called Vevo. The site is expected to be launched later this year. Warner Music, which ironically was the first major music company to sign a deal with YouTube, is now the lone hold-out from renewing its partnership with the hugely popular website.
