YouTube and copyright

With new technology constantly changing and advancing, new issues keep arising in the area of copyright law. One issue coming to the forefront recently is that of the posting of videos on the website YouTube. After Google purchased YouTube, the chances of website liability lawsuits and settlements have greatly increased. The Christian Science Monitor ran a recent article on the topic titled "The YouTube world opens an untamed frontier for copyright law" written by Daniel B. Wood. This is a good introductory article to the topic.
