Putting personal opinions about copyright aside, there is no question that it is a huge win for user generated content websites of every kind, and therefore the internet in general.
It remains possible to run these kinds of services free of charge. Which IMO is the only way can exist. No one is going to pay for the number of employees it would take to review every user upload, least of all the users themselves.
