I know that there are many videos there.
Youtube will remove them, but is it possible to have any legal problem with law, and what kind of problems can someone expect if do this?
Thank you in advance.
It all depends who complains, which country you are in, and if it's the same country as the complainers.
In most countries, you are breaking the law, you are also breaking Youtube's TOS.
So the possibilities are many, from a rapid ban by Youtube (that's almost definite), to being sued, to (unlikely) spending a few years in a cell. Either way, you'll almost certainly spend a few dollars on a lawyer.
All this, of course, assumes that someone notices. Spamming Youtube - with or without stolen videos - has not proved to be an effective marketing tool for many.
There are exceptions, but don't forget that 97% of the stuff on youtube is cr*p, and just sits there - there's no law making people watch cr*p, and often they choose not to. Most of YouTube's major successes have been as much luck as skill - and not everybody can be lucky ;)
You'll likely be spending time and effort marketing a video that promotes your site, where you might just as well cut out the middle man and promote your site!
