Notice, please, that Sony is in their legal right to block
this video wherever they chose, to protect the commercial
rights, for which they paid to the artists or managers or
Notice, again, that Sony paid for these rights. If they want,
they could forbid forever the public diffusion of any performance
of these artists... Forever. No explanation necessary. It's their
right. They paid for it.
In fact, many artists that sign with a Record label discover
this too late. They record an album, hoping to reach their
public, but the Record label decide to "shelve" their art.
Nobody could complaint, because that was written in the
contract, in really small letters, but there was.
Today we learn which countries could view blocked Sony
videos: England and Japan.
That's all folks!!!
