    YouTube/Warner Pact
    By: Justin Park

    Every single day, thousands of people watch videos from one of the largest websites in the world, most know it as YouTube. Recently, if you've noticed, music videos from the Warner Music Group, examples would be Green Day, Jay-Z, Metallica, and Madonna, have started disappearing ever since Warner Music Group Corporation and Google's YouTube started quarrelling.
    YouTube plays an important role in the daily teens' average life and would lose its popularity if it relinquished all or most of its hosted music videos. YouTube also happens to hold a large variety of user-posted videos. Warner Music Group Corporation has realized the potential of YouTube along with user-created media therefore they started imposing that they should receive money for every view that they get on their music videos. Because of Warner Music's interference, the stakes are high for both parties. Incredibly, YouTube the undisputed leader in video hosting has struggled to attract advertisers with its sole amount of user-created content and it's many YouTube stars. Meanwhile, Warner Music was faring just as well for in the last year alone, CD sales had plummeted by 25%.
    Fewer and fewer younger people discover music through the classic means of turning on their radio and instead, they turn on their computer and simply look up songs and listen to them, besides, it's much easier. YouTube and Warner Music could not need each other anymore than they already do according to the general public. YouTube would help Warner Music in advertising their songs in its part, and YouTube would get an effective major boost in the number of music videos and advertisers despite the number of user-created films.
    The deal that Warner Music struck with Google's YouTube is the result of a nearly year long dispute between the two major media companies. Warner Music, which was one of the few major titles that urged to strike a major deal with YouTube, will be able to sell advertising of its artists' songs and split the profits with the website. The deal can also relate to its song tunes/lyrics on user-created videos which in those alone, Warner can receive more money.
    To make this new deal, and YouTube more enticing to the average viewers and advertisers, Warner Music plans to include high-definition versions of their artists' music videos and links to their websites to further enhance the total advertising benefits that they can harness while riding on YouTube's back. It is more biased against the Warner Music Group mainly because they will be given more control over the selective distribution of their content, and they are given the rights to advertise freely and basically which has given Warner Music a leap in the amount of benefit they can receive from e-commerce.
    Credit Suisse, a financial services department that is a provider of wide-range financial services, estimated that YouTube was on the track to emit about $240 million in revenue in the year 2009 alone, which is currently 20% above the revenue taken in last year. However, it will not be enough to cover marketing and other specific expenses that are guessed to be placed around $711 million dollars. The times are not too dark for YouTube despite this since Google executives subsequently stated that the number of people watching ad-supported videos had tripled in the past year alone, it sure looks like the business will be profitable and highly prestigious sometime soon.
