Google shakes hands with Sony BMG, Warner for free music videos

Google shakes hands with Sony BMG, Warner for free music videosAh when the river of Google flows, it is plentiful. Not even sitting down for a breather, the big G has announced a deal with Sony BMG and Warner Music Group (yea, they shook hands with YouTube last week too) to bring "thousands" of free music videos to GooTube Google Video, thanks to their standard ad-supported model. They have plenty of videos linked front and center under their search box from big players like Madonna, Justin Timberlake and John Mayer, with a promise of more on the way.

It's going to be real interesting how all this Google Video, YouTube and copyright stuff pans out. Warner's aforementioned plan with YouTube showed some forward-thinking on the company's part to embrace these new distribution mediums instead of threatening them - it looks like these new post-YouTube acquisition deals, now with Sony on board, could be a sign of the times.
