@2: They will probably say something to the affect of: "Due to the overwhelming popularity of this video, only premium members are allowed to view it in order to offset the bandwidth cost."I'd recommend doing a torrent search for the premium ones. Until somebody makes something that is officially endorsed by Blizzard (that South Park episode for example), they can't legally make money from it, so a free distribution network should be okay.I haven't read Blizzard's letter to see what they say about who has copyrights over what. But, if somebody were to make a stink about their video being shared over the torrent network (and, therefore, not getting paid), they should probably add in all the legalese that is at the very end of movie credits, pay royalties to whichever music artist they acquired the song from, and pay royalties to Blizzard for the use of their intellectual property.This is just a vague overview of shoulds. I'm not a lawyer, nor do I play one on stage, TV, film, open mic night, the "massage parlor", or any other place where one would expect to see somebody openly admitting to being one. I'm a video artist by degree and had to know how far I was able to use somebody's work without getting into too much trouble.
