hey alek,

obviously if a cc licensor posts to youtube there is no issue. it's  
only if a licensee posts that we need to think about this.  i checked  
with mike and his response was that YouTube are not applying a TPM.   
they are simply making it difficult to download but not impossible  
and there's no real restriction on being able to do so or your usage  
after that...
