Universal pulls music vids from MTV sites

News: 9th August 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Media, Music Publishing

Following the expiry of an existing licensing agreement between Universal and MTV, it appears that new negotiations between Universal and MTV have broken down rather dramatically. Universal had handed over their negotations to Vevo, a music video service set up by the major label as a one-stop shop for all major labels artists including EMI and Sony.

Music videos for Universal artists will still be shown on the channel network, it is just the online outlets such as, and CMT which Universal Music Group have decided to pull content from. Statements from both parties seem to place the other as the cause of the problem, but let's hope this all blows over soon.
