Universal Music pulls out content from MTV
Advertisement
#1
Universal Music Group has removed most of its artists' music videos from US music broadcaster MTV's Web site due to disagreement over license fees.

For years, UMG conducted direct licensing talks with MTV. Now, however, it is directing all negotiations to go through the Vevo joint venture, which includes Sony Music Entertainment.


MTV says, "For almost 30 years, we have enjoyed long and colourful partnerships with all the music labels, including UMG and their talented roster of artists on MTV, VH1 and CMT. During our recent discussions with Vevo, we were unable to reach a fair and equitable agreement for rights to stream UMG artists' music video content. As a result, UMG has elected to pull their music videos from our Web sites. We are disappointed by this move and sincerely hope that UMG will work with us toward a fair resolution and allow their artists to once again connect with the millions of music fans who visit MTV.com, VH1.com and CMT.com every month."


UMG said, "MTVN has been unwilling to negotiate a fair syndication deal with Vevo to carry our artists' videos and consequently our videos will not be shown on their online properties."

No content, however, has been pulled from MTV's television programming.
