In its ever-increasing battle against Internet piracy, the RIAA is always looking for new ways to prevent people from listening to music without authorization. The newest way to share music illegally online, according to the RIAA, is via music video's from Youtube and Google Video.
Sites like Youtube and Google Video's are user-driven and run largely on content submitted by any one of it's 6 million visitors. According to the RIAA, it is also a haven to view unlicensed music video's that were recorded with TiVo or other Digital Video Recorders. A majority of the music video's posted on Youtube seems to come from recorded MTV broadcasts and are then uploaded to Youtube.
