This all comes under the heading of fair use. As long as we do not claim ownership of the product, and give credit to the owners of said product, and have a legitimate reason for using said product, then we are legally allowed to use things like images even without their owners' permission. Take Wikipedia for example. Without fair use, there would be no Wikipedia. Every image on Wikipedia has to qualify under fair use, otherwise it is removed.

As for Youtube, they purge periodically. Unfortunately, as someone said above me, almost everything on Youtube contains copyrighted material of some kind. The only good thing about it is that it will get rid of all those damned Rick Rolls too.

Excuses are like buttholes. Everyone has them, and they all stink.
