The corporate overlords at Google are flexing their dystopian powers and removing all Danish music from YouTube, because the corporation refuses to come to a fair agreement on paying Nordic songwriters

Its conditions are: accept our pennies or be censored

@benjaminnorton time to move to a democratically organized platform then. The only way a megacorp like Google is gonna learn is by people not using their services anymore

@benjaminnorton Denmark may be the first entire country to unilaterally move to peertube!
KODA can lead the way.

@thelazyfox @gemlog @benjaminnorton

its a small enough country with a unique musical culture for that to work (although currently this track remains online, which might be the only internationally well known pop song from a Danish group)

I'm seriously considering sending a rant to one of the Danish newspapers...

I'm torn between extolling the virtues of decentralised and federated media, and just lambasting them for wasting decades fighting the fake threat of filesharing...
