YouTube’s three-year-long fight with German copyright holders will continue because GEMA, a music royalties collection agency, has broken off the latest round of negotiations. The dispute stems from 2009, when GEMA and YouTube failed to renew a contract for video streaming rights. In 2010, GEMA sued YouTube for distributing copyrighted material without permission. Since the dispute started, German users have been blocked from viewing some music videos on YouTube. [Source: TechCrunch]
