Yahoo! strikes user-generated content deal with Sony BMG

November 21, 2007

News:  Yahoo! announced a major deal with Sony BMG that allows users to synch music from Sony BMG artists into user-generated videos uploaded onto Yahoo!  (More)

Analysis:  This is an interesting development.  I can’t wait to see how many Sony BMG artists’ titles are allowed on Yahoo!  As I’ve been saying for some time now, the synching of background music into user-generated videos is one of the biggest copyright issues on the table.  No one has come up with an adequate platform to satisfy consumer demand.
