How many TV videos have been uploaded by his label(s)?  ???
(Most of them are live vids uploaded by fans?)
Just around the corner and miles away...

I'm just worried it's the start of a slippery slope...

I understand.
In Germany, we already have the problem that the GEMA is blocking many official videos and stuff.
Here is a link to explain what GEMA is (especially point #9):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gesellschaft_f%C3%BCr_musikalische_Auff%C3%BChrungs-_und_mechanische_Vervielf%C3%A4ltigungsrechte

Trouble is they've also been blocking videos shared by the artists themselves, which doesn't make sense at all of course.  >:(

Good news is: no TV video has ever been blocked here so far, to my knowledge.  8)
