In practical terms of review-writing, the ability to direct readers to practical examples is also potentially very useful. No organisation or person has yet, as far as I know, prosecuted YouTube for breach of copyright. Similarly, I'm not aware that anyone has been prosecuted for looking at material on the site. What about directing someone to take a look at material on YouTube? Could that be done directly with a link, or indirectly by suggestion (some such vaguely-coded and mealy-mouthed wording as "examples may be found on well-known Internet resources"), or quite simply not at all?
Perhaps we have a lawyer among our readers who can offer some clarification on this issue - if only as the law applies in the UK, where most of our reviewing team are based. I am sure that I'm not the only one who would appreciate knowing the facts of the matter from an expert.
