French music industry reaches deal with YouTube
(AP) -- YouTube and France's leading music industry group have announced a deal that makes sure musical artists get paid when their videos are seen on the online video sharing site.
The statement did not say how much or how they would be paid. The deal affects any music "managed by SACEM" and broadcast in France.
SACEM hailed it as a victory in efforts to "favor legal use of works on the Internet."
