Emi? who's that, sounds like the name of a girl.
anyway, wy block it in my country, why not just ask the user to take the god damn video down?
i thought the whole point of the internet was for info to be spread around world wide.
also, why is it that songs are only available let's say in the UK store, US store or so on Itunes? i thought it was supposed to be world wide! what kinda shit game are yall playing me for apple?
so emi, quit the "blocked in your country" shit (if you don't want people to post it on youtube, then don't release it. it's free advertising for you guies anyway if they post it on youtube)
and itunes, please either just have all music available all round the world or don't have itunes at all, mmkay?
comments are welcome, but no negative ones please. and if any of you are from EMI, please understand what i'm getting at here, ok? ok.
and one more thing before i forget: i like my house music emi, i like my house music, and how am i supposed to listen to it if you keep on removing god damn videos, huh? i mean i can't just fly over to UK or down to the states to buy every album i like even though i wish i could, but i'm not made of money. that's the problom with you big ass record companies.
why not follow what Jessie J says, "it's not about the money, money, money." and "we just wanna make the world dance." if you guies went by what she said in that song, maybe i wouldn't rant at you guies,. finally, i don't like the idea of you expecting us to buy all our music, i mean what if someone buies it, and later they hate it once they heard it for the first time, eh? me, and i'm sure many others are like this too, but i like to hear the full song of something this way i know whether i'll like it or not. why do you think i know i like Toesto for music, and why do you think i got into buying pokemon movies, huh? because i got to hear them for free so i could judge whether i wanted to buy them or not, mmkay?mmkay?
mmkay.

    I know that feel, bro. Not just with music, either, but some stuff from anime as well. It's like...okay, well if it isn't available in our country, why does it still show up in search results/related videos?

    Electric and Musical Industries Ltd, as it was originally known, is a multinational music company.

    Country wide blocks are due to licensing issues, such as YouTube not having the license to broadcast content from certain film studios and record companies in some countries.
    i thought the whole point of the internet was for info to be spread around world wide
    The Internet is a network of networks, your confusing it with the World Wide Web, the goal of which is provide information and communication globally.
    also, why is it that songs are only available let's say in the UK store, US store or so on Itunes? i thought it was supposed to be world wide! what kinda shit game are yall playing me for apple?
    Licensing. Apple may not be able or have the right to sell some music or provide content due to copyright laws and contractual obligations.
    so emi, quit the "blocked in your country" shit (if you don't want people to post it on youtube, then don't release it. it's free advertising for you guies anyway if they post it on youtube)
    It may be free advertising, but it also deprives them of income, they're content creators and their income is generated through purchase, by giving it away for free their losing potential income.
    and itunes, please either just have all music available all round the world or don't have itunes at all, mmkay?
    Review my previous point on iTunes.
    comments are welcome, but no negative ones please. and if any of you are from EMI, please understand what i'm getting at here, ok? ok.
    I'll aim to keep this as neutral as possible then.
    and one more thing before i forget: i like my house music emi, i like my house music, and how am i supposed to listen to it if you keep on removing god damn videos, huh? i mean i can't just fly over to UK or down to the states to buy every album i like even though i wish i could, but i'm not made of money. that's the problom with you big ass record companies.
    Spotify, I believe that's a commonly used service which allows you to stream music for a low cost or with adverts.
    why not follow what Jessie J says, "it's not about the money, money, money." and "we just wanna make the world dance." if you guies went by what she said in that song, maybe i wouldn't rant at you guies,.
    I imagine Jessie J isn't a shareholder of the company and is unlikely to have much, if any, say in their business practice.
    finally, i don't like the idea of you expecting us to buy all our music, i mean what if somenoe someone buies it, and later they hate it once they heard it for the first time, eh?
    Refund. Or buy products consumers know that they will be happy with.
    me, and i'm sure many others are like this too, but i like to hear the full song of something this way i know whether i'll like it or not. why do you think i know i like Toesto for music, and why do you think i got into buying pokemon movies, huh? because i got to hear them for free so i could judge whether i wanted to buy them or not, mmkay?mmkay?
    Well, then you're breaking several laws then aren't you? Copyright laws, are the most obvious. You're depriving the artists you love from income because you don't want to buy their music.
    mmkay.
    Quite.

    I get all your points, but here are several questions:
    1. per "breaking several laws" part, how is listening to a song on youtube breaking several laws, it's not like i go on to thepiretbay or whatever the hell that damn site is called (don't like that site) and download a shit load of music for free. my main sources for house music are youtube and itunes.
    2. if it's not available on itunes or youtube, how am i supposed to listen to it, i.e. never wanna say (dj Bomba remix) or I'll be your light by dan d-noy. believe me if i could fly down to wherever and buy the CDs i would. but as it is, living in Northern Manitoba means flights even down to winnipeg are expensive, and also that the sellection of hosue/prog house music up here is piss por. the only times i really fly down to winnipeg where it is a little better is when i have an eye operation or when i go down for Keycon.
    and finally 3. why don't they just remove it from the search results after EMI/WMG/whatever removes the audio? no point in having the links appear in search results if it's not allowed in the user's country, dig it?
    i read your points, but that still doesn't change the fact that it's annoying as freaking hell, i mean, even people at EMI got to admit that it can get annoying seeing that notice after so many times.
