I still have a problem with the whole "it's ok to publish content on my site until the owner tells me to take it down". A lot of money is being made on OPW (Other people's work). That being said...I love YouTube.

The story continues... an incisive response from Google's legal counsel, Michael Kwun:
|In February, after negotiations broke down, Viacom requested that YouTube take down more than 100,000 videos. We did so immediately, working through a weekend. Viacom later withdrew some of those requests, apparently realizing that those videos were not infringing, after all. |
Though Viacom seems unable to determine what constitutes infringing content, its lawyers believe that we should have the responsibility and ability to do it for them.
