Indie labels have refused to sign up to You-Tube's yet to be launched subscription service citing "indefensible terms".   Although the majors have signed up, the BPI (the UK's music industry body representing the 3 majors and large indie labels) are supporting the indies.  You Tube are not pleased and have threatened to pull the indie's music videos from the free service "within days". This should get everyone back to the negotiating table - can the two work independently?   YouTube without indie music and indies without a major platform?
