Yea but then I guess there are millions of programs that can download the Music Vids off of YouTube... which translates into free music :-/.

Now this is just fucking stupid. Why not remove the videos completely, and set some kind of algorythm to block future vidoes of that nature? Keeping them cached (and stored) just wastes bandwidth and storage. Not only that, but it won't prevent people from adding them again later. Completely pointless.

That means we should have the right to have the music in any pop-up ads muted from the start.

I don't think the ability to listen to full length tracks without the artist recieving any revenue falls under fair use. But then again, I have been wanting to do a mashup of gameplay from Half-Life to Episode two to the tune of Ozzy's Crazy Train to poke fun Valve's train fettish.

There must be a simple means to get permission from a publisher to use a copyrighted work.

Wouldn't record companies want their songs heard more, as a form of advertisement?  Hey, if I hear a good song on a YouTube video, I just might go find it and buy it.  This is seriously getting ridiculous.
