I beleive that's actually been debated, ie, community standards.

i don't know about that - what makes that so easy... it's content filtering.

you don't think they actually have human beings watching every clip that's uploaded do you?

disagree. if it works well enough to stop porn, it works well enough to stop the majority of copyright infringement.

the same technology that hurts, also helps - it cuts both ways.

you're not seeing a ton of SNL clips on youtube anymore... and if you see them they're gone fast... why? content filtering... digital fingerprinting and content ID matching...

this isn't a technological issue, it's a political one - once there's political will, it's over.
