Uploaders? then you mean themselves. google released information that viacom employees often uploaded the videos
That's not exactly true. Viacom employees uploaded videos mostly to prove G didn't care or didn't want to know they were hosting stolen goods. Sad day for original content creators, good day for scrapers like google, youtube and the like.
Want to run a site with plenty of illegal content to easily make money? Have users upload it and claim ignorance!
Agree, I reckon now we have a precedent which opens the door to many into the stolen contents industry.
