As the current Bill Cosby situation has demonstrated, we, as a culture at large, are still struggling with how to talk about, deal with, and handle horrible accusations. There are no easy answers. No "go to" steps that you can follow and feel as though you've done the right thing every single time. In the past few days direct accusations against Austin Carlile have been made on YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, and the internetat large. After spending some time talking with others in our community, and the staff as a whole, I do believe it's important that we present the information as it stands.
Irving Azoff has asked YouTube to pull roughly 20,000 songs off their site ... according to Billboard, they have not complied. This may get messy.
YouTube may have made deals with record labels, but to publicly perform songs, the company also has to take care of songwriters, which Azoff says are "massively underpaid" when it comes to digital services. Many songwriters are handled by publishers working through performance rights organizations like ASCAP and BMI, but Azoff is spearheading a new venture, Global Music Rights (GMR), which has managed to sign up about 42 songwriters like Smokey Robinson and Chris Cornell, who collectively have published about 20,000 songs.
