YouTube wipes 30000 out

Even if it may not really be linked to the Google buyout, YouTube announced that it had removed nearly 30000 videos from its web site after the request of Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (JASRAC) who detected infractions about the copyrights they manage.

You had to admit that a significant part of the YouTube success comes from the publication of some videos that should be protected by the copyright laws. Not many movies, but some TV shows, music video clips (music and young Internet users are repeated bedfellows). It will be interesting to follow the way this will evolve and how it will influence the success (or lack) of YouTube.
