Ruin? Surely this is a good thing, it's Google. Although I guess some people would "It's Google, this is bad!" But I don't see what's wrong with Google, they're better than MSN.

I've been watching some certain clips over the past week or so and it appears that some related ones have recently been removed due to requeats or action from one network. For now YT is the only place at the moment that you can see those clips because that show which the clips are from is not for certain reasons being shown on tv. Anyway just think though. If people who have never watched a particular show before come across clips from that show, they watch the clips, love them and then think "where can I see more and where can I watch this show" then doesn't that mean more ratings for that show and network then from new viewers. I've seen some of the comments such as people saying that they love that show and hope that it comes back soon.

PFP, on the subject of Japan, here's a clip you'll probably love http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf7r6_l7AVk&eurl=

As long as they don't mess with the site, and take down certain clips, it is all good in my book.

Thay have still been taking off some of the clips I metioned about, but that it by request from the particular network. There doesn't seem to have been much noticable change in viewing or anything. As for clips being removed I don't think it will be Youtube removing them directly, it will be by request from the individuals/networks who hold the copywrites of the media. personally I don't see what the big issue with clips being shown on Video sharing sites especially if it brings channels ratings and new viewers as long as there's no profit being made from those uploading the clips. I mean some clips are from programmes no longer shown anymore.
