YouTube + WMG = Chaos

If I were to show you this video, what would seem wrong?

I pretty sure anyone who can hear would realise that the sound is wrong. The reasoning behind this is that the record label Warner Music Group seem to not want free advertisement and therefore put in a copyright claim. The ‘offending’ song is Panama by Van Halen which has been officially liscensed by Neversoft + Activision for use in the game GH Van Halen. The video, which promotes the game which in turn promotes the artist, is not showing the label in any negative light, so why take it down? Especially in this case – Guitar Hero Van Halen is due for quite a late release and there are a lot of people not sure whether to buy the game or not. What do they do? They look for gameplay videos. The game – if successful – will do wonders for VH’s music and that’s right labels – their record sales. Put the pieces together and you’ll see why this whole thing is stupid.
