This copyright lesson from YouTube featuring the homicidal, suicidal and just plain crazy cute fluffy characters of Happy Tree Friends highlights some of the risks of copyright infringement, and explains what sorts of content are subject to copyright. It also tells you what to do if you find your copyrighted work has been uploaded to YouTube.
This easy to understand, and fun to watch video is a lot less graphic than many of the Happy Tree Friends videos, but nonetheless it's a very effective way to communicate copyright infringement, and is likely to appeal to many who wouldn't understand some of the aspects of copyright explained.
If you have never seen the Happy Tree Friends in action you should check out their antics, although I will note, they are not for the faint of heart (think Itchy and Scratchy but more graphic).
