The Curious Case of Music Disappearing from YouTube Videos

Lately, many have noticed that copyrighted music has mysteriously been removed from user-submitted videos on YouTube. Now, YouTube is addressing the occurrences with a simple explanation.

Previously, when a video was faced with copyright issues, users could dispute the claim or select from a library of approved tunes. Now, users have a third option: simply removing the music.

Maybe silent films will make a comeback, because sometimes these copyright issues feel so archaic. The good news is that ditzy blond girls with bad voices can be stars again! Oh wait, we have Britney, Heidi and Paris. That trend never did go away, did it?
