I see the internet as a dark place when the media groups jump in the wagon and start making all the same mistakes I've seen made on television. First things first, the world is global. Internet is global. Content should not be copyright-hold on a country basis. Europe has been importing Hollywood latests videos and shows 6 to 12 month latter with the sole premise of seeing if it's a hit in the US. If it's a success the show is gonna cost more. Thats hit. Solo. Well, this sure set up a fast lane for piracy. I do get crossed when I see a YouTube video with the nagging "video not available in your country". There is absolutely no excuse for a global media corporation, these days, to exclude a video from a certain audience based on geographical criteria (wars and other bans aside). YouTube sure is going fast in one direction. I just don't know if I like the direction that much. I do understand the issue of copyright but don't forget the Viacom issue where the copy-holder is both depending on YouTube (by leaking copyright videos) and then suing the very own videos that had been leaked...
