Music videos are once more available to YouTube viewers in the UK after the streaming site reached an agreement with songwriters' group PRS for Music.

In March, YouTube blocked thousands of music videos to UK users, after it failed to reach agreement over fees.

YouTube, owned by Google, is paying an undisclosed lump sum to PRS, backdated until January and lasting until 2012.

PRS for Music said it was pleased an agreement had been reached but neither side would reveal details of the deal.

Im assuming that this wont stop the WMG/BMG videos from being blocked, since that was related to another issue?
