” So many people knew that UMG (universal music group) are banning kpop mvs on youtube. and what most of you knew are that UMG are trying to block all kpop videos on youtube. Well its not like that, heres the truth (found at allkpop forums)
It’s because most of CUBE’s artists are signed with Universal Music Group who has the publishing rights for these artists worldwide except Korea.The videos are available on youtube on for example 4minute’s vevo account which is handled by UMG. International fans are supposed to watch them there so that UMG are the ones getting paid by youtube for the views.
Okay i tried going on their vevo accounts and they work. Example, 4minutes’ volume up is block at ‘4minutesofficial’ channel on youtube, but try go searching ‘4minutes vevo’ and the video work in there. ”
Also, UMG IS ABOUT TO A KPOP BOY GROUP. WON’T MAKE MUCH SENSE TO DROP THEM.
