    When Google announced late last week that it would start demoting websites that were repeatedly flagged for copyright violations, it raised a question: Does this mean Google will start demoting YouTube results as well?

    I doubt it. It does not look like they are going to be very transparent about what sites are affected or how many complaints it takes.

    Hello AndyPR:

    I moved this thread from the Copywriting & Sales Persuasion forum
    to the Blackhat Lounge. You obviously confused Copywriting with
    Copyrighting - a not uncommon error. Copywriting is the art and
    science of writing text designed to convince people to buy what you
    are selling, whereas, Copyrighting is the process of protecting one's
    intellectual property.

    I doubt Google is going to penalize Youtube or any of its other properties. Google these days is all about advertising, they aren't going to do anything that might reduce the traffic to any of their sites that make money from ads unless they have to. :)

    I'm more curious how this will affect Facebook, it's pretty common knowledge that Larry Page isn't a fan, so I'm willing to bet they won't get any kind of a break here.. not that they really need it since most of Facebook's traffic doesn't come from search engines.

    They already do with similar thing
    It's called flagging
    (they won't punish themselves but they will remove video)
