Music labels are now officially mad

So Warner Music signed a deal with YouTube to "legally" allow using its music videos and songs on the site in return of advertising. Sounds good so far. Now read this -
The technology would also enable Warner to review homemade videos and decide whether to approve or reject them.
So now they want money if someone decides to do a lip sync to a popular song.
My reaction - "UP YOURS WARNER!"

Seriously. They can keep their Madonna music, I don't give a shit. I'd rather listen to indie artists and bands which are against this insanity that is plagueing (however you spell it) the music industry. Maybe I'll wait for the day when these big record label honchos remove the pieces of rock from their skull and put some white and grey cells in. Till then there's enough awesome indie artists to listen to.
