If there are links to places to illegally download games, that would be prohibited under SOPA, but I'm not positive whether the DMCA would cover it (can't recall, too lazy to reread the law at this hour). If it does, it needs a takedown notice for anything to happen.

The idea was that MU was informed about infringing material but did not take it down. If Youtube hasn't been informed of an infringement, there's no problem. That's what the whole DMCA safe harbor thing is about. Youtube is allowed to stay up, even if they might potentially have infringing material, so long as they don't know about it and remove it when they're asked.

DMCA took down popular sites that used to link to ROM files. so youtube links should be covered as well. and the idea that youtube is not aware of two year old videos that get over 50,000 views is laughable. the sites that people link to youtube how-to jailbreak/mod videos for consoles is the perfect starting point for anyone who want to find warez. one of the main problem with the megaupload case is that the DOJ claims they did not provide a useful search feature to find illegal content so that copyright holders can request their removal. youtube does the same by not tagging warez links on their site. its not like they are exempt from being web crawled by google. they own youtube. DMCA is simply not being enforced in a fair manner.
