    What's to get? Distributing copyrighted material without permission is illegal... YouTube is only explaining that fact. If it's because you think posting copyrighted material online helps an artist by proliferating their work, or that the people watching it would not have paid for it in the first place, that's not YouTube's problem. They're just the middleman.

    In fact, I'd say YouTube actually 'gets' it, because they're willing to give a person a couple chances before they take an account down, as well as giving a pretty clear explanation of what is right and wrong.
