This may sound like a dumb question but I was planning in uploading videos on downloading video game torrents but can you tube give companies or police my ip address (to sue me or imprison as it's illegal) if I upload the video's and the y are popular?

    If it's illegal, why are you going to do it -- and do you think that anyone here is going to trust someone that swipes material for their own use?

    Does this look like a black hat/warez forum to you? :confused:

    Are you protecting your on line business? If you have a website, blog, ecommerce store you NEED to back it up regularly. Your webhost will only protect you so much. Check out Quirkel. Protect yourself.

    Tommy,

    Technically, youtube doesn't exist anymore. GOOGLE bought them! SO, they WILL sell you down the river, NO QUESTION! And don't think it is easy to avoid. Adwords and the like are all over.

    If the guvment requested your IP from them I have no doubt that they'd hand your information over, especially if they had an official warrant.

    Since Google (the owner of YouTube) crawls this site on a regular basis, they probably already have your IP address. You have probably triggered a "red flag" just by asking that question. Big Bruvver is watching everything you do.

      Most certainly, OP. Vladimir Putin calls the entire internet a CIA project.
