Mark Cuban Challenges Google Video/ YouTube

Billionaire entrepeneur Mark Cuban complains about the Google/ YouTube copyright stance – like, “we can’t monitor everything, but do take down copyright-violating videos on requests” – and asks: why are they able to filter porn then? As a proof of concept, he’s asking everyone to try upload adult videos to Google Video and YouTube and send him the links. (I dunno... while it takes a lawyer to determine if the copyright is cleared on something – is it fair use quoting? is it copyrighted material? was permission granted? is the uploader the content owner? – it only takes a mere human to monitor clips for nudity.)
