Yes it is (I think)
Copyright laws are supposed to protect property and income. But with the increasing number of ways that you can copy and disseminate material in new media they’re becoming harder and harder to enforce. Is the media future unregulated, or should it be regulated by users rather than owners? Project YouTomb monitors alleged copyright infringement on YouTube by looking at the videos that get taken down. I think it's interesting that YouTube owners are not as concerned about appropriacy and ethics as they are about getting sued (see this post). Not surprising, really. If you want to read more about YouTomb read the Henry Jenkins commentary.

errm? copyright?
Ha! This really made me laugh, whilst at the same time playing into all those memories of trying to get my kids to sleep...but I didn't really get the relevance of your post (other than the Fathers Day link) until this morning. We enjoy sharing this sort of stuff...but copyright? Who cares?
