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.

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.

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.

It’s just people dealing with the same sort of lack of identity or whatever it is that’s happening in the lyrics. They’re relating to that.”
