Hard legal question to answer, but I would say in would fall on YouTube as long as you did NOT "steal" it from the web page in a way that is not the normal copy/paste of the given HTML code sometimes supplied by YouTube. I am not a lawyer, so you would be better to seek real legal advice if you suspect you may have a problem in this area.

I've had people complain about videos we embed, and once I point out that their beef is with YouTube, they understand that they have to kill it at the source. I think it would be a huge stretch to find you liable for a video that came with embedding enabled from YouTube unless you were doing something willfully malicious.
