Germany all set for YouTube Music Videos


Earlier this week, popular video streaming platform YouTube and German collection society GEMA reached a licensing agreement which will foresee music videos containing GEMA repertoire being available to view on YouTube in Germany for the first time in seven years where they were previously being blocked in this territory.

The deal between GEMA and YouTube ended in April 2009 which saw all music videos blocked on the popular video streaming website for seven years with music fans having to find alternative platforms to consume this content such as on VEVOs direct platform.

YouTube stated in a recently published blog post “This agreement reflects a long-held commitment that composers, songwriters, and publishers should be paid fairly, while ensuring fans can enjoy their favourite songs and discover new music on YouTube.” Making this a great achievement for music artists around with them now being able to reach and connect more personally with their music fans in Germany.
