It's about time Google's flippant approach to copyright gets them a slap in the face. However, Google didn't create YouTube, someone else did and Google just bought it after the fact so in reality they're still paying for the mess made by it's creators. Not like Google would've done anything differently, but it's still important to remember it was an acquisition.
Incredibill, have the other moderators determined that what you have posted here was not cut and pasted from a copyrighted source to insure that WW couldn't be held liable? ;)
While I can understand content owners having some major issues with youtube the alternative of making the site owner responsible is a very slippery and dangerous slope. If youtube can be held responsible for what their users have uploaded any other site on the internet can be held responsible including this one.
