Times Online reports that YouTube has agreed to pay royalties to UK artists for songs used in videos uploaded on the site. An agreement was ironed between YouTube and royalty-collecting society MCPS-PRS Alliance. The agreement calls for the video-sharing site to pay an undisclosed flat fee to license more than ten million pieces of music. The agreement means that YouTube video clips will no longer infringe on copyright in UK.
