    Exactly my thought.

    <sarcasm>Because as a Freelancer for 4 years now,i know Banning users who make you thousands of dollars(Viewers and i believe they had adsense) is a great business plan</sarcasm>

    YouTube itself could get shut down because of Protect IP. Therefore, not fine.

    Im pretty sure the music industry and movie industry would be against that. They put up music videos on their channels,and movie companies put up trailers,not to mention various governments and politicians have their own youtube channel.

    I can see quite a few of their videos; maybe it's just another way YouTube wanted to attract attention. Lots of companies cause "drama" to get attention.

    Yeah, but I don't think they would ban them if they had another option

    It's probably copyrights issues, and YouTube MUST ban in this case
