The mega corp music biz is failing.

Big labels continue to feed the masses terrible over hyped handsome kids that can barely play or write a song.

The big companies have to focus on those who are most likely to actually purchase product.

Two of those groups being country fans and little girls whose parents are paying.

The video service deleted more than 2 billion fake video views in the channels of Universal, Sony, and RCA, according to Daily Dot. The decision apparently was made when YouTube found out that the companies were using view building services hired from sites such as Fiverr to create video views that never existed.

Sony/BMG's was hit the hardest with views dropping from a total of more than 850 million to just 2.3 million. RCA declined by 159 million views to a total of 120 million. Universal lost more than 1 billion views and now stands below 6 billion.

Look at how marketers use Facebook. There's loads of YouTube vids on the topic. Often, they have angles which most of us overlook. There's a whole industry built around manipulating people on FB/Twitter et al.

No shit. A little faith has been restored knowing that there aren't 900,000,000 people listening to Justin F'king Beiber. So, the thing with internet money is it's fucking worthless, but if you're a manager for a piece of shit act and have staked you're rep on it, what better way to get absurd booking fees than to speak to some technophobe booking agent and say 'look, 900 million views, this will sell out in no time'

Bet whoever owns PSY used this trick too.

I have Korean friends. They were talking about it (in English) and they told me he was chosen. Amazing that. They also discussed how many K-Pop 'stars' are chosen and that the songs are chosen too.

According to them the remarkable thing is how cheap and tinny the music is and were very surprised that the world had bought into the crap that is chosen for them to watch and listen to.

Who's really surprised at this? Youtube has been so obvious with the tampering!

The whole entertainment industry should be burning down!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30899323


the music industry has been [burning] since about 2003, really since the early 90's, but that is a much more complicated topic than just the filesharing issue.

About time! I knew they were faking views a long time ago. If you look at any video's statistics and most of the views are under "First view from a mobile device" it's probably been inflated by view bots.

Hahaha, everything is fake these days... girls wear ton of makeup, takes botox, surgery, fake tans, among men; metrosexuality has been on the rise for years. Brainswashing children through entertainment to act and live in a dumbed down way - non yielding, over consuming and destructive. This is not sustainable, and 'they' know it.

Buying fake views is just the tip of the ice-berg for what these criminals are capable of doing in order to lure kids, and even adults, into thinking this or that gives social status and approval.

It's about time we shed lights on ALL THEIR DIRTY SECRETS, way to go YouTube! hf

What happend to Operation Mayhem??

Re: YouTube Kills Billions of Video Views Faked By Music Industry
Op, great thread. Thanks.

Now that I read this thread, I see that.

It's interesting that YouTube is cracking down on 'hits', as it where, because YouTube AFAIK is owned by a corporation called NewsCorp. But don't look a gift horse in the mouth, they say.

The music industry demands perfect honesty from its listeners. If a listener downloads one song from the internet w/out paying for it, the industry takes them to court. I read that a typical fine is $3000.00 USD for each song.

[link to www.theguardian.com]

Try googling this-> caught downloading fine

...But for some reason, they are/were allow(ed) themselves to be dishonest with the public. No problem. What? It's just PR.

F'n Hypocrites!!!!

If I watch a YouTube video, for say, two seconds... Does that count as a hit?

Question.

What about on here.

Views Etc. ?
do not judge those who try and fail.If you must then judge those who fail to try..


I have always thought to myself,If one thought can change the world.
Then surely one thought could have created the universe.
