    Default Does anyone have a legitimate solution to GooTube?

    The reason I went to youtube was because alongside the stupid crap people do to themselves, I could get just about any piece of television history. From the odd couple to 80s cartoons, to the lastest animes, to yesterday's episode of the daily show, but with ever increasing amount of lawsuits (incited by google's money) the shows I loved to watch a disappearing. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop this?

    Unhappy

    Yeah, I used bit torrent a lot, which is all great for some popular movies and latest shows, but there were lots of rare stuff on youtube that doesn't get released anymore because of licensing issues or are simply really old. Also there's the point of the telecommunication companies trying to set up kinds of booths along the lines and limit bandwith. There's even rumors of them planning to set up a system where people can only receive alloted gigabytes of information each month. This means no more streaming, no more bit torrent, no more p2p things like kazaa/lime wire.

    Yeah I love youtube too, I go to youtube if I miss my fav. TV show.

    but youtube is supposed to be used for people who wants to upload their own made video and not for uploading show on TV or other copyrighted video / film. So u just be glad that there is soo many crap videos that makes them (youtube) lazy to sort and clean up those who infringed the agreement.

    Real pirates get high quality stuff. Leave youtube for non copyright infringing videos.

    Wait maybe if you make the video private, they wouldn't care, so why don't make all those copyrighted videos private, and make all youtube users your frineds :]

    EDIT: this won't happen, they want people to use their hyper speed internet service.

    What really set me off, was when they started removing news segments. I just couldn't imagine the people at MSNBC asking google to remove clips of Keith Olbermann flaming Bill O' Reilly. Maybe I'm just being paranoid after reading what China has done to its Internet. With the Rupert Murdoch and neo-conservative treatment of our media, the internet seems like the last bastion for free speech and truth. The last place where people get the topics and all the facts that back them up.

    There have been rumors about capping bandwidth and metering usage since internet access providers began offering flat rate/unlimited internet access accounts. The trend though over the years has gone in the opposite direction...selling individuals unlimited and increasingly faster connections.

    The phone and cable companies can play this competitive game, but it's been rough on individuals and businesses trying to afford the kind of bandwidth they need to adequately serve content to a horde of hungry downloaders on fast, cheap, and unlimited home connections. This is where I've usually seen one form of usage limitation or another applied
