Fresh off a court victory against Google's YouTube, ASCAP tells us it is setting its sights on users of the video-sharing site. Welcome to the exciting world of copyright licensing, blogger; you may already owe gobs of money!

ASCAP licenses the performance rights for music, collecting royalties for its songwriter members when their songs are played in certain contexts.

Those contexts now include a YouTube video embedded on your blog or website, assuming your site is not "purely" non-commercial and is deemed large enough by ASCAP. The group just sent a collection letter to internet entrepreneur Jason Calacanis (pictured) for YouTube videos embedded on his Mahalo reference site. Based on what the group told Valleywag, other startups should be worried:

ASCAP does not offer licenses to – or require licenses from – those who simply make their personal blogs available on purely noncommercial Web sites. Mahalo.com is a larger venture than simply a personal blog, and therefore ASCAP is engaged in discussions with Mr. Calacanis concerning the use of ASCAP members' music on the site.

ASCAP sent collection letters to other website owners in the spring; YouTube told recipients to refer the group back to YouTube. But then a judge ruled Google owed ASCAP $1.6 million while a court fight between the two sides over licensing drags on. At some point, website owners are going to start wondering how much longer Google will offer to handle all the legal complaints over YouTube embeds — and just how many songs they've embedded over the years and now owe royalties on.

i doubt that is the reason..

more likely it costs more for er because it requires more bandwidth..

How does facebook and every other non-commercial internet forum and blog get around that? Did ER start selling stuff? Where are the ads?

I suspect it costs more for the bandwidth, but I don't know if it's a fact..it doesn't really make sense to me..

That would be a question for MadCow. I'm sure she'll eventually see this - she maintains the programming of ER.

It would be great to have if it's doable.

Agreed--I have such an opposition to clicking random youtube links, as I'm sure most people do. Plus I just don't really like leaving a page when I'm reading a conversation--I get distracted and the rest. But anyhow, yes, it would be nice.

BUMP.

No reason why the ER owners should do anything, though it would be nice and real cool and all that, but as the request/enquiry has been up here for >2 years, I see no harm in pushing it back to the top again. We live in hope.

EDIT: other forums I sometimes use, which have youtube embedding, do not pay extra to their providers for the functionality - it's provided as part of the board software. (Perhaps phpBB don't have this functionality? :? )

EDIT: maybe one of the admin/mod team could bring this to MadCow's attention? So she can say, definitively, Yes, No, or You're avin a larf entcha?
