A few days ago it was reported that Vevo had purchased Showyou, a subscription-based video hosting website. This news has led to many reports that Vevo could be looking, not only to expand beyond it’s main home of YouTube, but also that it could be looking to implement a paid service for it’s gigantic catalogue of music videos. This comes at a time when streaming royalties are being constantly debated, especially in the context of free music sources such as Vevo.
