I'm with Patti on this. YouTube seem to be following Apple's way of thinking; "let's treat every user like a thief". By treating a user like a thief, we can protect our content and block any attempt at trying to do anything with that content. We'll also swing our big corporate weight around and scare and intimidate anyone wishing to do anything we don't like. We'll fill the content with DRM and platform-lock as needed. This makes us more money. Well, they can continue to think that. But removing DRM and platform-locks is not rocket-science and there are plenty of like-minded people doing the same across the web (Pirate Bay et al).

The corporates are desperate to return to the vinyl, tape, CD cycle of yester-year by device and platform-locking. YouTube are following this 'corporate' mindset with their policy for copyright material and it can only add fuel to the 'pirate' fire...
