    someone from the copyright department had a hangover :)

    and once they're over a couple of 10k they're much harder to get deleted. I think youtube keeps them since they're so successful and they're really just hurting themselves by deleting them, whereas they save a couple of MBs of space if they delete the low viewed ones :)

    I don't think its viral but i think Youtube loses money by removing these videos (more money then the record labels would charge)

    Straight Answer: Glee don't/didn't have copyright on there video, if the video was uploaded before the copyright was made then the video is legally allowed to stay up. Thats why some videos are on there because they are uploaded before the copyright has been published.

    This is simple. The Office is owned by NBC. NBC will rip YT a new asshole for having any of their shit online, so YT removes it as quick as possible. I used to have a ton of shit from SNL saved on YT, but after the big brouhaha with Viacom, all that shit was GONE. Don't fuck with NBC stuff. Waste of your fucking time.

    What? Copyright doesn't work like that. Fox had the copyright on the show the minute they turned on the frucking camera. And besides that, the music is all leased from whoever the original copyright holder was. So, no. Wrong.

    It looks like he also is using monetization on the video? This is confusing.

    I saw this guy a few weeks ago and was wondering how all his videos are still thriving.
