YouTube 30,000 Times More Legit

When Google announced plans to spend the equivalent of half Donald Trump's net worth on YouTube, I knew the video site would have to clean up its act -- the rules are too loose, and too much junk and material covered by copyright end up on the site. The cleansing process has begun as the site just yanked some 30,000 Japanese videos. Apparently, YouTube has a policy where it only pulls down files after someone complains. Isn't that like a burglar who only returns the goods after he's been caught?
