YouTube cuts three content deals

CNET "YouTube announced on Monday partnerships with Universal Music Group, Sony BMG Music Group and CBS that let their artists' music and videos be included in original content posted on YouTube's site.
The media groups will authorize the use of their copyright-protected content if YouTube users are willing to pay for it.
As part of its deal with Universal Music Group, the video-sharing site has agreed to use new technology to filter out any unauthorized content. Universal Music Group owns multiple record labels, including Island Def Jam Music Group, Geffen Records and Verve Music Group."
