Legal When her 0.29" family video was taken down by YouTube on the request of Universal MPG, the affected mother of two struck back with a lawsuit against Universal with the help of the EFF. While technically her family video might have been a copyright infringement as she had no license to include Prince's song as a background score, it is encouraging to see the public fighting back against restrictive laws that get in the way of their every day lives. My Take: I stated my own opinion on the matter on my personal blog.

On what basis do you suggest that YouTube should become the copyright police?

Nowhere did I suggest that YouTube should become the copyright police. I merely indicated that their right to decline to investigate the legality of the material they host contributes to their profits.

Otherwise, I broadly agree with your comments: this is a complex area.
