YouTube is now aggressively responding to Zoë Keating’s post about Music Key, calling her claims about content removal ‘patently false’. They have also demanded a retraction from Digital Music News. The conversation is mid-stream, here’s the communication so far:
[Update: Sat. morning: After discovering that Keating was taking detailed notes of her conversation with a YouTube representative, YouTube appears to be re-grouping to clarify their policies and figure out exactly what artists are being told. They have also not clearly explained why they are demanding a retraction from Digital Music News. More as it develops.]
[Update: Monday morning: No response yet. YT told DMN on Friday that they were ‘reaching out’ to Forbes as well; Forbes hasn’t changed a very similar headline]
