Did you read the arstechnia article?
Those emails are totally irrelevant to the case at hand.
Those emails that are 4-5 years old (the statute of limitations on copyright violations is 3 years)
They all took place prior to Google purchasing Youtube.
These emails do nothing to speak to how things have been run since Google took over. Nor do they speak to the percent of traffic that views original content vs copyrighted content.
I understand that they were doing the wrong thing, but that was 5 years ago. I like to think a lot of these and quickly online in 5 years.
