Copyrighted Music On YouTube & Other Online Video News

This week our look at the Reel Web includes several stories surrounding YouTube, specially how users can now create videos in the cloud with WeVideo's cloud-based video editing software. Just upload your video clips, edit them the way you like -- complete with titles, transitions and color correction -- and immediately publish to your YouTube account.

Also big news concerning YouTube's license deal with Merlin, the world's 5th largest record label. Soon we will be able to use copyrighted music from their artists in exchange for promoting the band and YouTube paying rights for the track's use. Sounds like a win for everyone: artists get promotion and money while video creators include the artist's talent in their work.

If you edit with some higher end software like Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, or Adobe After Effects, Big Giant Software now offers a free version of their Magic Bullet Looks plugin called, Looks Limited. It's a free download and is worth it if you can't afford the full Looks software.

QUESTION: Will YouTube's music license agreement be a win for everyone?
