Youtube is a national treasure.
It's the only way massive amounts of archived data can be easily distributed. Its search feature is second to none and its content is astonishing.
One can find everything from 50 Cent to Liberace, Woody Woodpecker to the Simpsons. There is no record or video store one can go to to buy such content.
Also, Youtube packages American culture in a single website with a single search box. One can show children operatic and orchestral performances or musical comedy with Victor Borge and Leonid Hambro.
To sue such a system is to wish to hide the best America has to offer: this in a time when the whole world hates us and especially forces in the middle east wish to finish us off.
I for one would love to defend Youtube in a lawsuit. There is sufficient precedent to succeed: attorney fees have been awarded in one case against the RIAA and at least one federal court has held that opening one's files does not equal "distribution" within the meaning of copyright law.
So I pray Youtube endures and Goggle does everything to preserve and even expand it. The archives of all our television history should be made available in Youtube for the world to see us in our best light.
