I agree. The essence of it is, that YouTube is nearly useless for Germans,
because most contend isn't available regarding to GEMA issues. OTOH you
had to pay a fixed rate to the GEZ, if you had a computer, even if it's a
C64, unable to play videos. Nowadays you have to pay a successor of the
GEZ, if you've got an abode, even if you don't own any gear to watch
computer videos, radio or television. You automatically pay GEMA for empty
tapes, CDs etc. in Gemany.
OTOH, artists on tour might want to know, that in some states of the USA
and Australia they won't kill you, but the punishment is very hard, if you
own weed and for foreigners it's not allowed anymore in the Netherlands,
or perhaps not in all regions of the Netherlands. It's not completely OT,
less punishment doesn't mean that they won't disassemble your tour bus,
amps etc. ;).
