Maritime band battles to keep music on YouTube

Commentary by Stephen Downes

A Maritime band is struggling to keep its music up on YouTube. The videos were removed following a takedown notice by Universal Music Group (UMG). The problem is, the band owns its own music and is not connected to UMG in any way. As the law stands, however, there's no requirement for UMG to prove it own the music; it just has to say it does, and Google will take the videos down.
