Warner Music videos yanked from YouTube after contract dispute
Negotiations broke down last week over licensing fees for Warner's music and videos, say people familiar with the discussions who were not authorized to speak publicly.
On its blog, YouTube alerted its audience to the collapse in talks, noting that professionally produced music videos and those that fans create using Warner songs would begin to disappear.
It remains unclear whether YouTube or Warner decided to pull the plug.
