right now you tube is hosting thousand of bits from the major networks without permision from them. Yet if NBC wanted to air something from CBS they would need permission. Yet because Youtube is a content provider not the actual one that uploads it they are not breaking the law. So they say. With the advertising they generate it makes it look pretty suspiciuos. Even though the advertisements are not on the video pages the videos generate traffic which interns gets the advertisements seen. So does Youtube deserve to be hauld into court by NBC. And the RIAA is actually cracking down on people singing along to their favorite songs on video. basically amateur videos. and one more thing, Youtube recently pulled down a video by an atheist that condemned and presented arguements against islam. But previously he did the same thing with christianity and it stayed. SO is there free speech issue or was youtube smart for avoiding another Danish incident.
