    I was thinking about uploading some copyright content on youtube . So in the normal event I will get my account banned and video will be removed. Is there anything worse that could happen like If someone wants to make an example out of you for uploading copyright content. Thanks in advance for answering.

    I don't think so I believe YouTube will just take the content down similar to people who upload music videos that aren't the official music label

    Would never happen. I have been uploading copyrighted material to YouTube for years and all they ever do is delete your account. Well after you get three strikes anyway.

    It all depends what country you're living in. If you want to know what's the worst that could happen, it's jailtime + huge fines (and I mean huge). It all depends on the copyrighted material, whether it's enforced or not.

    The others went to jail because they didn't remove the copyrighted material even after the rightful owners complained.

    There are two ways that might happen. They will ask you to pay some fee's for the copyrighted content or kick you inside the jail for a certain period of time.

    Alot of folks have been getting away with it for years but stuff like SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, will put a stop to it.

    Something happen that you will be banned and your account will be deleted. I don't think nothing above this.
