YouTube is obviously not very protective when it comes to privacy as its a video hosting site. People can upload videos about an individual and the individual not have a clue about it. This is a breach of privacy laws as the individual might not wish their videos to be up on the internet for everyone to see. </li></ul><ul><li>The example put up above relates to privacy on Facebook as Facebook is being forced to give away its user data to a media giant in the US called viacom. This sparked an outrage of privacy advocates in the US as it discloses personal information of the users of Facebook. </li></ul>

The Copyright Tips page and the Community Guidelines can help you determine whether your video infringes someone else's copyright.” </li></ul><ul><li>Youtube doesn’t view videos before they are posted online. </li></ul><ul><li>It is seemingly upto the “ copyright holders” to issue a notice on the taking down of the video as it doesn’t abide by the “ Digital Millennium Copyright Act ” </li></ul><ul><li>Thereby as portrayed through the number of articles , youtube has been taken to court has they have done little to ensure that the videos posted abide as per the copyright laws. </li></ul>
