Music manager Irving Azoff, hailed to be the most powerful person in music industry when he topped Billboard’s Power 100 in 2012, had recently established a royalty group called Global Music Rights to take care of some copyright-infringement business. Very recently, he sent multiple letters to YouTube claiming them to be hosting over 20,000 unlicensed songs, including ones from John Lennon and Pharrell Williams, and demands for them to be removed. Google defended against the claim, however, insisting that they do possess the necessary rights, but Azoff remains headstrong with his assertion. Despite this, you shouldn’t be too worried about having too many of your favorite songs disappearing off the platform; Azoff has not had too much success with his fights in the past. Even though, in this case, he had created the company in order to challenge copyright disputes, the process for each individual song is so specific. This makes it almost impossible to accomplish simply just due to its sheer quantity. At this point, it is impossible to predict exactly how this will turn out, but we can assume that there will be no quick and easy resolution.
