If the site is concerned about copyright, why allow youtube? any particular reason for double standards

That YouTube allows the clips to be shown is exercising the above right, having stated that they are not responsible for any legal hassle pertaining to the supposed owner of the clip (ie person who uploaded it).
EDIT: Worth noting that YouTube also monitors the site for copyright infringement and removes any footage seen to do so when notified. This further lessens the liability of the viewer.
And see as I cleverly snip out all the irrelevant aspects of your post.Rajeev said:I was talking about other sites where video is shown, just like Youtube
Where did he say that?Rajeev said:Excuse me?
You mean to say, it's fine to record and upload on Youtube.com (without anyone's permission) but it's not fine to record and upload on your blog/site?
This is an excellent question, but sadly, I doubt that anybody here (including me) is really equipped to satisfactorily define a consistent position on it (legally based, anyway). I suspect that Youtube presents huge issues for copyright infringement, but that it's largely accepted to link to by most sites because it's simply so proliferate. In any case, the policy here is likely to be fairly arbitary, but you might as well accept it.Rajeev said:..My Friend, Brilliant Read..Ahem...

BTW, Youtube and any other site doesnt remove the videos unless the provider complaints
Copyright is copyright, however it is interpreted..I am just confused abt cricketweb's policy on this
cricket videos unplugged
How is it different from youtube? video source is from ESPN or SKY or someone else. yet the above blog is *** 'd out? why
wowopen365 said:How can linking youtube be illegal??
Youtube own copyrights to all of the videos posted on it now, they changed their policies, and so if you youtube host stuff that they have copyrights to, why can't people post a link to it?
Edit: This video has www.cricketweb.net on it, why?
