UK Songwriters Post Online Response To Google

British songwriters and composers have launched a new website — www.fairplayforcreators.com — to highlight concerns over the use of their work on the Internet. The site, an online forum set up by UK performing rights society PRS For Music, was created in response to the March 9 decision by Google to block access to premium music videos for U.K. users of YouTube, following a failure to agree to licensing terms with PRS. The site urges Google, who acquired YouTube in 2006, to restore music videos to YouTube, and advocates fair payment for use of their music online, stressing the importance of royalties in nurturing creative music talent.
