pulling some videos

YouTube is disabling music for which it needs a license from a group called the PRS.

What this has in common with Fresh Hot Radio is being selective about catalog. Music products like the Spotify subscription service need all the music in the world, bar nothing, and when there is a gap in their catalog it’s a serious problem.

Whenever one provider feels obligated to encompass the entire world, it’s a step against an internet solution, and vice versa. Spotify is like Compuserve or pre-web AOL.
