YouTube Is Purging Copyrighted Clips

I wonder if this is going to hurt YouTube in the long run. On the one hand, media hosting sites should respect copyrights, but on the other hand, this is they type of content that attracts viewers such sites. YouTube and its many clones out there better figure-out a middle ground soon else this video boom is going to be in big trouble.
[YouTube] late last week began purging copyrighted material from Comedy Central, including clips from YouTube stalwarts like “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” “The Colbert Report” and “South Park.”
