quote: Youtube has a strong Content ID protection system. Those Young Jeezy videos in the screenshot - although the content owner did not upload or authorize them, the content owner is making money off the video - click on each of the links, the video is recognized as being the Young Jeezy song, and his record company makes money off any ads shown on the video, as well as the affiliate link to purchase the song.Content owners can choose to either block their content from being uploaded, or to allow this and get all the money from the ads. Filesonic etc did not allow this choice - content owners got nothing from the illegally shared files.I hate the way the MAFIAA are riding slipshod over the internet, but don't draw Youtube into the crossfire, they aren't doing anything wrong.
quote: Also Megauploads and etc are file and warez sharing havens, while they do have legitimate uses, the sites barely track and do not manage the content that is on them.
quote: And it takes the most basic measures to block pirating of movies and TV shows; no video can be longer than 10 minutes.
