ok, time for everyone to rename their business model to "service provider". from now on, i'm not a web publisher anymore, i'm officially a "content host", because i want to get rid of all the responsibilities regarding copyrighted material. this is a free ticket. if youtube is allowed, everyone is allowed, right? broadcast yourself!
only thing is, i'm not located in the u.s. i know in my country, there would be little chance to get away with this. there is no "safe harbour" ruling for commercial websites, that i have to take down unauthorized content not until some user calls attention one day. instead i have to approve the content beforehand or at least delete it within a reasonably short time without being noticed by someone else. i'd say this is a big locational disadvantage.
