If I go to Youtube or a movie-watching site and watch something that contains copyrighted material (movie clips, TV show openings, TV show episodes, songs, characters, logos, etc.), am I breaking the law just by watching it? Does it make a difference whether I download it or merely view it? I know the uploader is probably breaking a law, but what about a passive viewer?
On a related note, is it illegal to link to such material, or recommend that people search for it?What about bookmarking a video on a web browser, or saving it to a (public or private) playlist on Youtube?
