    This article was originally published on benscomputer.no-ip.org in 2009

    There has been a bit in the news recently about Google's decision to remove access to Youtube hosted music from UK users. This is as a result of a breakdown of talks between the Performing Rights Society, and Google itself.

    In statements, PRS has identified the problem as arising from Google not being willing to pay more than a pittance. Google states that the dispute has arisen because of the vast jump in PRS Fees.

    The PRS has now set up a website - Fair play for creators - dedicated to pushing their message of Performers and Composers rights.
