But no ..again you mean money site ..( you tube competitor ) ..money making or the desire to make money does not justify everything ..
knowingly or unknowingly ..if your site depends on images which you dont own or you dont have proof that you own the rights to display them and that they do not contravene the law ( and we are here talking Italian law not US ) being displayed in order to exist ..
then it should not exist ..be it youtube ..or inyourgardenshedtube ..and I can only make it work if I use "user generated content" so I'm not responsible because I cant oversee it all doesnt work ..legally ..
Not even in the USA ..where sites ( forum sites and image sites ) running some user generated ( uploaded ) illegal pron images of children have beeen shut ..and the owners prosecuted and .."I didnt know until someone complained" didn't wash with the judge ..nor did "my site depends on letting random users upload images" and "how can you expect me to track them and count the money at the same time" :)
relevant ..yes ..
If your site is too big for you to handle ..you either get some help and prefilter everything ..or you dont run it ..period ..
youtube and it's ilk would be no loss if they went offline forever tomorrow ..
