They are not 'platform providers' they are, in certain instances (of which YouTube is certainly one) publishers, and that makes them responsible for content they've published.


If I stole your photos and published them in a photobook claiming them as mine, would you hold the publisher responsible?

In that you are the publisher in that instance, yes :-D
Photobox (for example) can't be regarded as a 'publisher' in the proper sense of the word, if they were producing 1000 copies of your photobook for resale then they would be.

-edit- to clarify, I assume you're talking about vanity style photobooks here i.e. photobox and the like. They're more akin to printers than 'publishers'.

YouTube is publisher in this instance no.

I'm overcome with sympathy for the poor souls at Google - they can have everything for free - is that what they want ? - original creativity at no price - Sergey Brin can make more billions while struggling artists in all mediums wither or starve or just give up.
