    Google signed a deal with the Japan Rights Clearance Inc., an organization which holds the rights of approximately 5,000 songs. Every new copyright deal signed by Google is welcomed, as it keeps the company away from copyright lawsuits and brings the users on the legal side.

    According to the deal, the users who want to sing one of the songs owned by Japan Rights Clearance Inc. can do it without any restriction as long as they upload the recording on YouTube and as long as Google pays a sum to the organization.

    Google has encountered lots of copyright lawsuits in the past when numerous firms sued it so this is a very important step made by Google.
