    Hello everybody?. Today I was reading copyright rules of youtube in their website, Then I got a question? the people who do not obey the copyright rules for the videos they upload, aren't they fearful to be wanted or taken to court/jail?

    That's unlikely to happen, your channel will get terminated.

    Nobody is going to jail, just your video or channel get suspended.

    That depends on WHO is complaining. Let's say YouTube finds out that you use material you don't own or allowed to post: they will simply suspend your account. But if some lawyer finds out and he/she is representing the client of this video/material, then they will sue you and you might have to go to court/jail

    it all depends on who finds out :)

    They just ban your channel, nothing more.

    No one has been taken to court or sued by youtube for this sort of activity

    actually, a guy was taken to court by sega if i remember correctly. But it was an extreme situation, it's unlikely
