This could affect the independent musicians in a big since it's tough enough to pay for gigs, merch and other things. Basically paying for your own hard edited and created content will thus provide another block that was once overcome for the little guy who literally had nothing in his pocket to pay for this kinda exposure.

I understand a need for a big corp to do this but YouTube is established as the authority for video creation and sharing i guess i don't really see why they had the need to copy other products.
