If you’re trying to find that old Jermaine Stewart video of “We don’t have to take our clothes off (to have a good time)” from 1986 on YouTube, you better do it soon. Music videos from MTV, BET and other clips could soon disappear from the video-sharing site. Viacom, parent company of MTV, failed to reach an agreement with Google’s YouTube.
The entertainment giant is now ordering YouTube to remove more than 100,000 video clips from its servers. All hope isn’t lost however if you’re looking to head down memory line. Other companies, including Warner Music Group and CBS have come to terms to allow some content to be uploaded by users. But in the meantime fans of old (and often forgettable) videos might want to play them while they can!
