Quote: how legal is it put things like that on Google Video/You Tube?
It's not. But Youtube is apparently only at fault if they get a complaint from the content owner and do not take it down. That's apparently all the DMCA requires. I don't know how it works for content owned by companies outside the US, though. That would be an interesting question.
And I found the sketch suprisingly unfunny. Maybe it's the language barrier

Quote: Those episodes aren't even available to buy so I don't think people will care *too* much. You Tube have so many clips - the BBC must know about them. No?
Possibly, I'm not sure. I sure as hell don't have a problem with it!
Have you got much Shooting Stars stuff? I'd love to get a clip of the 'boy band' they created in one episode. All I remember about it was Will Self/Johnny Vegas era and featured Vic with a donut-style afro haircut.
As for not getting it issue. I doubt it's a language barrier thing, I'm sure there are plenty of people in the UK who don't find it funny. It's the surreal aspect of their humour that I find so funny.
