  1. Hmm. Any tips to whatever you're referring to or talking about without having to click on some links?

    Cliffs: If you post a cover on youtube without asking for permission first and it becomes popular the industry will sue you for royalties and/or have youtube remove the vid.

    Basically that^

    I guess they want individuals or bands to obtain a synchronization license. So if they post a cover song on youtube or vimeo or whatever they can't be held responsible for copyright infringement.

    I was told a few days ago that they are trying to pass some new regulations on this matter.

    The only new regulations will be to make it harder to post covers on YouTube and sites like it. As it is, the copyright owner can request that the video be removed, and YouTube has to do so.
    The copyright holders are taking back what belongs to them. The digital age was letting their rights slip away, and the industry has been a little slow in catching up, but they are starting to.
