RIAA chief Cary Sherman has suggested that YouTube is short-changing the labels by operating a DMCA-protected protection racket. Google of course sees things differently, noting that the tools already exist to take down unauthorized content on a permanent basis.

Universal's deal with YouTube has already expired and the deals in place with Sony and Warner will time out later this year. As a result, the major recording labels are in negotiations with YouTube and are demanding better rates.
