Aha! That'll show them.

It is so stupid to censor something on the internet, it only calls even more attention to it.

You Tube thinks they are being 'clever' by placing the Zucker add off limits as an item with 'questionable content'. Well, we'll just GO AROUND THEM, just like we did the MSM. Liberals cannot stop it. They should know better.

Awesome reference! I have always went through a tedious, elaborate process to get flash format videos saved for later viewing. This is very easy!

I'd love to be wrong on this, but it seems to me that most people (if not most Freepers) will use this in ways that may very well constitute copyright infringement.

Then again, since GoogTube apparently just cut deals with major content owners...maybe not. But it looks like the sort of file-sharing to me that most would consider to be illegal.

You can see this on hotair.com, a site that doesn't have all the insane restrictions and thinks that YouTube does.

What a dumb comment.

A little clip of a TV show is not copyright infrigement, and saving it to your HD isn't either.

Why is everyone here acting as if YouTube is the only video hosting site in the world? You could put it on Metacafe, Photobucket, Google video (maybe) or even MySpace!

Dumb? Sorry you think so.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Tube#Copyright_infringement

Please don't corner me into actually having to take an RIAA-like stance merely for the sake of this discussion. I thought conservatives were supposed to have respect for the law. Downloading copyrighted content without authorization is against the law, and a 'little clip of a TV show' may very well constitute copyright infringement.

I didn't say that was definitely the case, and I chose my words carefully for a reason. Then there's the issue of whether or not a copyright holder cares enough to wish to prohibit it from being available on such a venue. Quite a few do, and, when they complain, the video is taken down.

Saving it to your HD doesn't make it not akin to illegal file-sharing merely because you say so.

In the examples you cite, merely viewing the content is copyright infringement. It's not clear that saving it to disk adds to the infringement (unless you then subsequently sell it or share it, of course).

On the other hand, if the online content is legal to view, then saving it on your disk is simply fair use (again, unless you publish the saved content to others without permission).

Well, like I said, I don't want to find myself taking an RIAA stance. But I thought illegal downloading was supposed to be wrong. Why? Because it's copyright infringement.

Things have changed lately, of course, but it strikes me that promoting software that is likely to be used to infringe the copyrights of others without at least mentioning this is irresponsible. That said, I'm not the copyright police, believe me.

And I'm not sure that merely viewing the content could possibly constitute the infringement, but then I don't think this sort of thing has found its way to a court of law. Seems to me it's the uploading that's the actual infringement here. Beyond that, it gets kinda theoretical & since Google acquired this site it would make sense that their due diligence produced a result where infringement will not be a large factor.

Nevertheless, if content is still being pulled, then someone owns it & doesn't want it up there. To me, it doesn't make sense that we would condemn illegal file-sharing, but we're all for this...and for pointing this out someone wants to call me names? Gee, I guess I'll just have to get over it.

Either you choose to obey the law, or you don't. In this case, the law may be murky, since it hasn't yet caught up to technology. I feel that the idea that doing a little research to make sure one is in fact not breaking the law isn't too much to ask to mention in a thread like this.

If you upload videos to Veoh, from YouTube, you can then download videos from Veoh onto your own computer (using the Veoh software), so that you never have to worry about losing them from a site.

You are an RIAA Nazi.

Where do the founders say they believed this restrictive copyright system was their intent? Only useful arts and sciences are subject to copyright.

I frankly don't believe Dancing with the Stars qualifies by that standard.

Copyright infringement is wrong. But, posting a 2-minute clip out of a 30-minute show like often goes on at You-Tube is clearly within fair use limits.
