LOS ANGELES Sep 15, 2006 (AP) Universal Music Group, the world's largest record company, contends the wildly popular Web sites YouTube and MySpace are violating copyright laws by allowing users to post music videos and other content involving Universal artists.

"We believe these new businesses are copyright infringers and owe us tens of millions of dollars," Universal Music CEO Doug Morris told investors Wednesday at a conference in Pasadena. "How we deal with these companies will be revealed shortly."

I don't know but it seems to me that, Universal should be happy to have all of that free advertising and promotion. MySpace and now YouTube are hugely popular. What better way to get your artists out there. IDK Just a thought.

Yep, you would think . Also if the big brains in charge of music would let people download ,say, 1song from each new "album" a artist releases they might get more people intrested in buying said music. I very seldom listem to music anymore unless it's in the car, not a real big selection there. as most of the "new stuff" is disapointing to me.

I agree. Music should be avilable for download, but then again most is from the band's website but people are too lazy to go find it. Also it wouldnt help me out because i dont listen to normal music and they typically have crap websites. Also i have to look on wikipedia for new bands and just use band sebsites and their links.

Honestly, who didn't see this one coming? I'm surprised it took this long.

Agreed. I'm waiting for the day when it will be illegal to record songs off of the radio.
