I'd say MPAAs biggest problem is YouTube.

i started out as a good multi-quote, then you all answered crap for me so all I have left to say is: Youtube can't go down. For if Youtube goes down in a country (officially) Google has no reason to keep hosting in that country. Just think what happens if THE major search engine decides to pull out of a country? Google has that right and it's a card that even the US govt doesn't want played. Youtube is safe for now. But you are all right, this is a per-emptive strike to keep things smooth for Google.
there are other dirty things I'm sure google could do, like drop govt domains from searches or worse... Google is now on the scale of MS, or even bigger. Even as a Govt you don't really mess with those corporations. If you think about it, Google has the money for an army. Whether it be real soldiers or men in black suits and a court room. Bottom line, Google has too much money now to really be screwed.
