Youtube will soon remove music from Danish songwriters. This is due to a dispute over royalties where Youtube now wants to pay much less than before.
In April, a multi-year license deal between Youtube and Koda, the Danish variant of Sabam, ended.
Pending renegotiations, both parties are working with a temporary agreement that is now due to expire.
But the renegotiation has failed, so Youtube now states that it will remove music from Danish composers and songwriters from its video site.
Koda says in a press release that Youtube is demanding that it pay almost 70 percent less to Koda for the rights of Danish music makers.
If it didn’t agree, the video platform would take steps to remove content from those creators.
