To some extend yes but youtube should have a policy to enforce against piracy. If someone uploaded pirate material here I would still be responsible. Youtube are making money from the ads show on pages displaying copyrighted material so they have a duty to enforce

Generates good advertising for you tube though doesn't it!!

I think the point is that if any one is watching it then it should be MTV making the money from advertising, not you tube.

true, but mtv wouldnt get any more viewers even if youtube removed all the vids, so youtube are making some money, mtv are being advertised, and the customers are happy. i dont see the problem

Read the YouTube TOS. They clearly state that the user is at risk for putting up copyrighted material, and they cannot be held responsible.
