SEQUEL : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdFe4J... Some possible solutions to answer people who complained that we're all complaining too much.

lock and load. Yes, this bothers me this much. When I see people kill creativity to make money it burns me up. And I've been seeing a LOT of people with "fair use" content having their videos yanked over this. So yes, this bothers me. Don't like it? Don't watch.

And I still maintain that a major problem is when "artists" become "businessmen". how many people know Lars Ulrich had controlling interest in a recording label for a while? Right around when he went after Napster. Coincidence? I think not. But now, I see information that leads me to think Youtube isn't nearly as "victim" as they're trying to play themselves off as. I think they're happy to let the masses believe they did nothing, when it might be the case that they're the ones forcing the issue here and turning the screws on Warner. We'll see how it plays out in the next few weeks, but I think the time to do something is *now*.
