American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 50•24 Jun 19, 2014

YouTube has threatened to block music videos from independent labels that have not yet signed on to its upcoming subscription service, YouTube Music Pass, meaning that many indie musicians could be blacklisted from the streaming service. What do you think?

  • “It serves them right for trying to make it in the music business without the backing of a major corporation.”

  • “Maybe it’s time those indie musicians grow up and help sell some ads like the rest of us.”

  • “What about fan-made ukulele covers of those artists’ songs?”
