Taylor Swift and dozens of other musicians are reaching out to the American government now to make some serious changes to YouTube and Google itself. According to a Recode report, Swift, U2, and along with Universal Music, Sony Music and Warner Music want the government to come down harder on internet companies and how loose they are with media their users are uploading. The artists feel they aren't being paid out enough money for the times their tracks are played on YouTube. Big time manager Irving Azoff conceived a petition/letter to Congress and is the main architect behind the push. The letter will be featured as an ad in a few Washington D.C. publications this week.
