It’s Complicated: Warner Music Comes Back to YouTube

first_imgfrederic lardinois Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Warner Music, which had removed its videos from YouTube after licensing talks with Google broke down last year, just announced that is has reached a new deal with YouTube and that Warner’s music videos will once again appear on YouTube. The partnership, according to the official announcement, covers the complete Warner catalog and “includes user-generated content containing WMG acts.” Warner will be able to monetize user-generated content thanks to Google’s Content ID technology, which can detect copyrighted content in YouTube videos and then allow the copyright holders to sell ads against this inventory.According to Google, the partnership is based on a revenue-sharing deal. Thanks to this deal, YouTube users will now have access to videos from all the major record labels and most of the major independent labels as well. Warner Will Sell its Own Ads and Get a Custom PlayerJudging from the announcement, it is clear that the Google Content ID system (which was just integrated with YouTube’s stats package earlier this week) was a major factor in bringing Warner back to YouTube. It’s also important to note that Warner will sell its own advertising inventory. Thanks to this, as Billboard’s Antony Bruno points out, Warner will be able to set its own prices and keep the majority of the ad revenue, even though it will share revenue with YouTube. Bruno also notes that YouTube will create a branded player and custom artist-channels for Warner’s content and that Warner hopes to include more commerce and social networking features in this player.

Three arrested in Bengal for murder of mentally-challenged woman

first_imgThree persons have been arrested for suspected rape and murder of a 30-year old mentally challenged woman Guria whose body was exhumed on Wednesday from a privately-run rehabilitation centre at Dhaniakhali in West Bengal’s Hooghly district.The arrests were made late Wednesday night. The police are also on the lookout for the key accused Shyamal Ghosh who is on the run. Inmates of the home alleged that Ghosh had seriously tortured Guria a few days before her mysterious disappearance, sources said.The authorities of the asylum said that Guria was admitted to the rehabilitation centre for mentally ill people (women) on May 22, 2012. She died on June 26 and buried five days later in a makeshift grave in the backyard of the rehabilitation centre.Women and child development and social welfare minister Sabitri Mitra has ordered a probe into the murder.”Three people including the secretary of the home Uday Kumar Konar have already been arrested in connection with case. Police is investigating into the matter thoroughly,” Mitra said.The minister said that the state government has shifted as many as 80 mentally-challenged inmates from that home to other asylums. “We have also cancelled their licence to run the rehabilitation centre for mentally deranged women,” Mitra said, pointing out that a magisterial inquiry has been ordered into the case by her department.The body of the victim was sent to Chinsurah in the district for post-mortem examination. The post mortem report will come out in next few days, police sources said.The National Commission for Women (NCW) has also sought an action taken report (ATR) from the district administration on the incident.advertisementSenior CPM leader and former West Bengal sports minister Kanti Ganguly dubbed the incident as gross negligence on the part of the state administration and demanded higher level inquiry into the matter. “I want a CBI probe into the incident as the primary investigation suggests it was not a natural death. The question is why her body was buried without giving any information to the police or the woman’s family members,” Ganguly said.last_img read more
