"Grey area"...???

Youtube business model depends on turning a blind eye...

Millions of folk work hard on uploading videos to provide youtube with free content,
which they then monetize with advertising rake-offs.
Feeding a little revenue back down the chain to individual video makers.

Major corporation rights holders, and other criminals,
then exploit any petty accusations of infringements
to mug the small fry videographers,
forcing them to hand over their ad money under various threats to their channels..

Easy scam money off the backs of powerless ordinary folks,
simply by employing AI and minions to log petty, or downright false, complaints on an industrial scale.

Youtube automatically sides with the dispute fabricators to maintain a charade of stringent legality.

Meanwhile, youtube is also making a nice little earner charging subscription fees to stream and download
all this 'no questions asked / grey area' content on Youtube Premiun, and Youtube music...

The main premium selling point is the facility to DOWNLOAD...!!!

Youtube could't survive if they only provided 100% technically legal content...

We know it.. they know it...
