Jack White and Beck are amongst the latest round of musicians to sign a petition against YouTube. The petition aims to curtail the settlement reached by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, created in the United States to regulate work shared online.

 

The service is not specifically named in the petition, although it does criticise sites given “safe harbour” so long as they comply with takedown notices. The petition states: “The tech companies who benefit from the DMCA today were not the intended protectorate when it was signed into law nearly two decades ago”.

 

Jack White and Beck are amongst the latest musicians to join the cause, alongside nineteen companies, three major labels, and the Recording Industry Association of America. Musicians supporting the move include Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor, The Who’s Pete Townshend, David Byrne, U2, TV On The Radio, and plenty more.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
