Question Re: Perhaps this time....

Thanks to all who returned info but, are you telling me that all the ametuer videos posted on say, You tube are covered by first aquiring permission through the music publisher who currently owns said copyrights ? Yesterday I was viewing You tube videos of James Burton, my favorite guitarist and I clicked on one that was listed as "James Burton cover". It turned out to be a kid trying to copy Burton's guitar style. Although I credit him for his efforts and hope someday he achieves stardom, I can't believe he obtained permission before posting. This is just one of many such videos, usually performed by wantabees in their bedroom. Why is it not the responsibility of You tube and other such sites to police such entries before they are posted?
