I have a question on the ethics or lack there of, when it comes to posting links from YouTube on this site.

It is obviously a "no-no" to post links to illegal file sharing and things of that nature, but why is it okay for members to post a link to a YouTube video that someone posted of copy-written material?

I am specifically referring to a post made in 'Penny'.

For some odd reason, Café members seem to think that it is okay to post and share YouTube links of the latest Derren Brown special. Isn't this the same thing as posting links to an illegal file sharing site? C4 didn't post them and I am sure they will fight to get them removed. The video that is posted on YouTube of Derren's show is posted there WITHOUT permission. Therefore making that post of the special illegal and unethical...is it not?

I feel that links to protected content on YouTube should NOT be allowed just like any links to other illegally posted material.

Can you clarify the stance of the board?

Thanks

... I know I would hate to have that job on the Café of verifing every YouTube link that is posted.

However, since you discovered it then I guess the prudent thing to do would be to flag the post with an explanation as to why and the Mods will do the rest.

Besides, I keep them busy as it is with them deleting my posts.

I'm sure if you hada valid complaint you could send to you tube and let them deal with too.

If Derren Brown had a problem with it, he could have YouTube take it down. They have measures in place on both sides. As long as it's on YouTube and Brown's okay with it, who are we to argue?

And... it's copyRIGHTS not copywrites. So it would be copyrighted, not copy-written.
