We just got enhanced uploading capability at YouTube and longer content allowances but it seems the new SOPA and related IP acts up for legal battle and empowering lobby groups against Copyright abuse will make all these changes rather useless. I know bootlegs are supremely frowned on but I still want to hear them for posterity, and Youtube allows film viewing which can be argued needs to incur viewing fees if allowed. For me though, I think free is TV at the least, and documentary fare. I typically buy a movie I like and watch it on YouTube for other reasons, since the quality will ALWAYS be of a lesser degree, and YT cannot stream you HD as you get on home equipment delivery, nor can it give you 8 channel digital surround. I think streaming is nice if you're in transit, on your laptop, but at home, most don't sit at their computer to watch programming, it's just one outlet, and could all be under threat VERY soon! http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20111219/04440117128/poll-suggests-americans-all-ages-political-positions-locations-all-hate-sopa.shtml
