People actually care about the ads?! O_o Well anyway, I think the main point here should be the copyright laws. The thing about copyright laws I have a problem with isn't the laws. Yes, it's irritating when one day I watch a video on YouTube, and the next, it's removed due to copyright violation. However, I take it in my stride. Besides, I very much understand the need for them. What I do have a problem with, is the way the rules are enforced. There seem to be some double standards on YouTube, where some videos violating a little of the copyright are removed, but others that violate as much, or much more, are not. That's the worst part.

It's stupider not to have them, actually. Why?

Copyright laws are annoying, but necessary. A necessary evil, if you will. It is a compromise between us consumers and the producers of what we consume (music, videos, etc). It's better to just live with it than just throw it off because then we would have to get into a big fight about what we should do about copyright. Consumers would rage and boycott products, Producers would get mad and stop making material, etcetera etcetera. As consumers, we have to remember the producers are out for profits. Even the kindest producers also need the money from people buying their stuff to stay alive (food, water, housing? Basic needs for living) which is why Wikipedia has to solicit for donations. They may be free, but they too need money to survive. The servers aren't free, and the people working on them need to get paid too.
^ That's why.

Btw, what about the other half?

It's not that bad. I'll get mad if they forced me to see ads before watching the video. Which is really annoying.

I can live with the ads since I go on Nico Nico Douga now anyway, and Youtube doesn't have any ads on the videos I want.

His show sucks. His title's are completely misleading and only 5% of his videos have anything to do with his title. This is what everyone does on youtube.

I don't really consider titles making a video. They generally have some interesting things, and usually are pretty funny.

Not really. Most of it is mainstream media bullcrap, like how much Britney Spears' hair sold for or other junk that would appear on ETV. I'm glad I'm not attached to that junk. Too bad the great majority of people care about the crap they sell us.

There is a good amount of interesting stuff, though. I know what content your talking about. Quick, funny, stress relieving and I like it but unfortunately (like I said before) most of what the popular people on YouTube feature is mainstream media/American Idol/Dancing with the Stars/Hollywood junk.

Yeaaaaaah... not everyone. I mean, check out my vids. Not EVERYONE does this. As a matter of fact, one of Youtube's most famous poster (ForrestFire101) does not have misleading titles, even Fred. You are very mistaken and are looking at accounts that put the word "Boobs" in their video tag to get more views.

And it's in YouTube's Terms of Service: No misleading thumbnails or titles.

In fact, it's not misleading. He does talk about the things he puts in the thumbnails and/or video titles. Either that or he links to the story about it.
