    What will happen with this eventually , is the labels will just buy You Tube & then completely control the revenue streams from all the videos , using any portion of their artists catalogues. Next up monitoring people in their homes using any of the home speaker devices, & claiming copyright infringement for any music not provided by approved providers such as Spotify. You will not be able to privately play music in your own space ever again. Isn’t the digital world great!
