    YouTube Kills Billions of Video Views Faked By Music Industry

    The video service deleted more than 2 billion fake video views in the channels of Universal, Sony, and RCA, according to Daily Dot. The decision apparently was made when YouTube found out that the companies were using view building services hired from sites such as Fiverr to create video views that never existed.

    this is pretty bull ****** by the music industry. they sue people for pirating because it's "stealing", but then they fake views to get more money from Google.

    Doesn't surprise me considering a lot of labels have been buying their own albums to boost sales for a long time. It's just about creating momentum and hopefully the public buys into it.

    Another example is radio. Labels aren't suppose to be able to pay the radio stations to play their artists so to get around that they give them gifts. Again, once the song catches the ear of the masses, they start requesting it on their own and you end up with a popular song.

    You may already know this but for everyone else who doesn't, this is why the job title "independent record promoter" exists. Basically, labels pay these guys to pay out the radio stations in the form of "promotional assistance" basically operating and other such costs that the radio station would normally have to pay themselves, essentially creating a middleman and legal loophole around the "no pay-to-play" law. It's really a sweet gig, wish I knew how to break into it.

    No, that's just a youtube thing. The view count will hit like 350 and stay like that for a while even when a video is getting thousands of views.

    That's cool, I'll continue burning their music onto CD's and uploading their MP3s.

    lol The sad thing is the artists who are just trying to survive and make a living are caught in the middle.

    Well, artists still get paid pretty well for concerts. Way I see it, if I only like one or two of your songs, I'm not gonna buy your record anyway.
