If this rumor is true, it is unprecedented.

We are hearing rumors that Youtube is now paying Prince to have his music on their site.

Prince, a long standing opponent of youtube, may have finally reached an agreement with the popular video web site.  Lately, Prince's latest videos and songs have been getting posted on youtube (but wanting the videos not to be posted elsewhere and has disabled the embed code to post on various web sites.)  So he may be easing off on them.

I think it is a GREAT decision. I have always been a supporter of youtube and if radio doesn't play your stuff or MTV is too busy showing an episode of the Hills, youtube is an amazing promotional tool.

What do you guys think of this decision?

I don't really care if it took Youtube to pay Prince, just glad he is open to the usage of it.-Dr.FB
