  Seems like you're changing the topic a bit. Further, Hulu doesn't allow arbitrary user-uploaded content; YouTube does. And YouTube does offer links out to purchase content for some music in videos they can identify.
Per http://www.youtube.com/t/press_statistics, "72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute." So, no, human review isn't possible for every video. You have to rely on algorithms, supplemented with limited human review.
Seems like nothing will satisfy you, which isn't atypical for commenters here. Human review isn't feasible for something at YouTube's scale.
  Disabling untrusted sources is hardly disabling openness. Further, it can be enabled selectively -- if you want to install a third-party app that you trust, enable the setting, install the app, then clear the setting.
Given the extremely high rate of video uploads, what do you suggest they do?
I'm not sure what you mean by "refuse to actually do anything" -- Google regularly removes content from YouTube when receive they a DMCA notice. In fact, they've been criticized for being too aggressive about pulling content.
Of course, no where in this article or any of its sources does it claim that this is an issue for apps in the Play Store. Most malware is found in shady, third-party stores. Further, Dilger's claim that "FinFisher is installed by simply visiting a Web link or opening a text message that disguises itself as a system update" is misleading. Android devices block third-party app stores by default. Unless a user has gone into their security settings, they don't be able to...
What iron fist would that be? The iron fist that released an operating system under an open-source license which lets their competitors (e.g. Amazon, Baidu) build good products? The iron fist that paid a competitor nearly a billion dollars to develop Firefox, including a version that can be installed and made default on Android?Again, if you just want Android without restrictions, just checkout the AOSP source and build away. But if you voluntarily join the OHA, then you...
Meaning, they're not a monopoly. Nice try at a smear, though.
