YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley says the European Unionâ€™s restrictions on licensing content have â€śactually made things worse,â€ť PaidContent
reports. The critique, made at the MidemNet conference in Cannes, stems from the fact that companies must license music and music videos mostly on a per-country basis. â€śIt would be great, at this point, on the publishing side, if they were able to streamline their prices, potentially have a pan-European license that would cover publishing, because for us itâ€™s hard to deal with,â€ť he said. Hurley also mentioned that as YouTube currently receives more than 10 hours of video content per minute, the company will find better ways to organize it and share it in 2008.
