Good for them, for once the judges didn’t cave to the crap big media spews when trying to get their way and bully everyone into removing anything they MIGHT think infringes. YouTube doesn’t load anything the users do so I don’t see how they can be faulted unless they tell everyone to please upload every copyrighted thing they can find.
