    I think it is both a way to stop uploading videos, and a way for big brother to watch us.

    technically, though, uploading copyrighted material is against the law according to the DMCA (which can go suck itself).

    I truthfully don't see why it needs to turn into such a big deal - the uploaded vids are at poor bit rates and poor resolutions, anyhow, and many times even the craptacular quality of copyrighted videos help push awareness and interest in the legit material.
