Youtube Says They Paid The Music Industry A Ton Of Money This Year -
In a blog post by YouTube Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl, the video-streaming giant says it paid over a billion dollars from ad revenue alone in the last 12 months. As more advertising dollars shift from TV, radio and print to online services, the music industry will generate even more revenue from ads. In the future, the music business has an opportunity to look a lot like television, where subscriptions and advertising contribute roughly equal amounts of revenue, bolstered by digital and physical sales.

We've launched a new section where we feature reviews of music software (mainly plugins, VST, VSTi, DX, DXi) every now and then. We'll usually provide sample mp3 files available for download so you can audition the software. We've also formed a section where all the contests and their respective winners are announced (participation to these giveaways is naturally free).
There's a stripped-down version of RockReviews now available for users with handheld computers (PDA) and mobile phones with web browsing capability. It's called Rough.RockReviews
For the most part, it has the same content as on the main site, though not all sections are included. Every CD and DVD review of music and music videos related to rock and metal can be found there, but software reviews aren't included (so be sure to continue visiting the main site as well).
[Updated on June, 2006/February, 2005]
