Lady Gaga and Sir Paul McCartney are among the musicians who have signed a petition urging European leaders to change laws concerning YouTube compensation rights. The letter was published on Wednesday (29Jun16) and directed toward Jean Claude-Juncker, the president of the European Commission, asking leaders to create stricter copyright laws for user-uploaded music streaming sites such as YouTube. In the missive, obtained by Billboard, the signees state these online services are “unfairly siphoning value away from the music community”.
