  1. I had no idea that YouTube had such an advanced system for detecting copyright infringement. I do wonder how YouTube deals with this because there are, or at least were, many fan made music videos on YouTube that used an artist’s entire song. I’m wondering if they still allow the use of copyrighted music if the video’s uploader says explicitly in the details of the video that they do not own the rights to the music they used.
