Ambivalence on YouTube

There is a line tucked deep down in this LA Times article where Google’s VP of Content Partnerships, David Eun, says

We know for a fact that there were some companies that were very vocal about the legal concerns, whose own marketing departments were uploading content to YouTube.

He implies it is some terrible hypocrisy but really is it not about choice over who has control? I guess the companeis involved are complaining about large-scale breaches of their copyright on YouTube, but still doing some targetted posting of content they have made a business decision can be used as promotional material. Not entirely nonsensical.
