SAN FRANCISCO â€" Pointing to internal YouTube e-mail messages, Viacom said in a court filing unsealed Thursday that the site’s founders deliberately turned a blind eye to copyrighted videos that were uploaded to the site so they could amass a large audience and sell the company quickly.

The charge was one of many made by Viacom in newly released filings in its $1 billion copyright lawsuit against YouTube and Google, which bought the video sharing site in 2006 for $1.65 billion.

Youtube follows copyright pretty well as far as I know. Loads of songs have the soundtrack removed, all a publishing company has to do is send a mail, and youtube will comply.

$$$ I guess as usual.

for example, 3OH!3 gained a lot of popularity from myspace and youtube, and now there a very famous national band on the radio etc.

I've seen videos/music get deleted nearly 5 minutes after there uploaded, I doubt the Company emailed Google that quickly and got it removed. I guess Google takes it into there own hands and removes them
