The article presents the author's views on criticism of major record labels by users of the video web site YouTube because the labels want their music content removed from the site. The author says the fair use rights claimed by these users are misinterpretations of U.S. copyright law, and that companies like Warner Music Group are just trying to find a business solution that is fair to everyone. INSET: ROCK THE HOUSE.
