I guess they won't sue you necessarily because you have nothing they can take you for but they will block the video. Here's where it gets more tricky you can draw a picture of a copyrighted image and sell it no problem but if it's a video/digital image that you put together you can't share it at all. I think you can write a fanfic but you can't sell that either unlike the drawing.
Also what's more messed up is if someone pirated a DVD/CD and you bought it from them not knowing it was pirated you can't sell it to someone else (even if you honestly told them that's what it was) even though you didn't get to get the money back from your scammer.

Here is a story and I do not have the date.
This is the center of the discussion as far as music, etc.

This is a funny topic, any site you visit in a web browser has been downloaded to your pc, no matter the browser you use, it gets stored in cache/temp/ram files that then other processes on your pc may duplicate even if the browser cleans up after itself.

hate these topics as they usually devolve into tech sparring, in order to view/look at anything you must first download it somehow, end of story.
