YouTube is requiring users caught uploading pirated material to take an online copyright class and pass a test before they can resume sharing videos on the website. What do you think?

"Yes, copyright laws can be complicated. It's often hard to tell if you are uploading something you created yourself or something someone else created."

Andy Vereen • Systems Analyst

"Well, at least there are plenty of nerds online I can threaten into taking the test for me."

Jill Pressel • Adjuster


"Ugh, I hate school. Can’t they just fine me millions of dollars?"
