Depends the artist contracts... According to MegaUpload, no money went to the artists because they signed that away. :shrug:

No idea, and it makes no sense. It seems the "carefully planned execution" or whatever they said it was, was simply posting it on YouTube... And the production costs most certainly didn't even amount to a fraction of that.

MegaUpload seems to be the sketchy ones here...

Also, this already existing (and totally legal) tool has nothing to do with that act by congress. It hasn't even been passed yet! It makes sense to me that they have that kind of access, especially considering leaks/ illegal steaming files. It makes sense to me that they would be able to remove a video quickly themselves.

This is the first time they have done so, and YouTube is asking for a true legal reason. Hell, the court ordered Universal to tell why this was illegal.

YouTube's already owned by Google, that's a lot of corporate togetherness.

Fuck censorship.

Universal should just stick to theme parks, it's probably the only thing they really excel at anymore.

It's probably just a viral campaign for The Dark Knight Rises.

I was gonna say this.

Also I can see why Trent Reznor hates UMG so much.

I'm assuming you don't know what a backdoor is. In computing it is just a way to gain access to a system and being able to control it. Usually it is a breach in security by a change in the code or even compiler code, but Google themselves apparently gave Universal access which is weird.

Haha, I know what a backdoor is. (that's what she said)
