Rumblefish Signs YouTube Music Deal

YouTube announced that it has signed an agreement with independent music licensing agency Rumblefish to let YouTube users add Rumblefish content to their videos, PC Magazine reports.

That means, essentially, that someone can score a home video without worrying about a random lawsuit out of left field from an overly greedy legal department at a record company.

“Using our AudioSwap tool, you can now easily add pre-approved Rumblefish music, or selections from our already extensive catalog of music, to your new or existing videos,” YouTube said in a recent blog post. “This deal is exciting for indie filmmakers because it connects them directly to the same pre-licensed, quality indie music but at a price that they can afford,” Rumblefish CEO Paul Anthony said in a statement.
