If they think there was copywrite infringement, they will remove it. Otherwise it will stay up.

Go to youtube, search "<insert name of popular song> parody", and you'll find tons of results. Clearly, they don't really care.

Aslong as you can pull it off as a parody/satire/spoof, you're Ok.

I've been researching this question.

What's the worst that can happen? You could lose your Youtubeaccount, but only if you're a repeat offender.

And what's the best? Either the copyright holder neverdiscovers your "crime," or--better yet--they decide not to challenge it.This could happen if they want to get advertising revenue from it, or if theyfeel that it helps promote their work.

But if the copyright owner complains, Youtube will eithertake down your video, or alter it, removing the offending audio. You'll have achance to respond; check out YouTube's Copyrightcounter-notifications for details on how you should do this. You might also want to check out YouTube's <a href="http://www.youtube.com/t/howto_copyright">Copyright Tips andexplanation of FairUse.

You have another option: You could go to the copyrightholder and try to convince them to give you retroactive permission. But ifwe're talking about a major artist or record company, you can pretty muchforget about this approach. You probably won't even get the right person on thephone. And if you do, they'll likely ask for a very large licensing fee.

When YouTube takes down your video, they give you one "strike." Three strikes, and you're out ofYouTube--your account is closed. According to YouTube's GeneralPolicy Enforcement page, strikes "may expire in 6 months," butsearch the Web for youtube strikes goaway and you'll find plenty of complaints to the contrary.

So what can you do to protect your video creations? Althoughthe major labels aren't interested in your situation, small, independentmusicians will likely feel otherwise. Check with them beforehand, and offer tocredit them onscreen, and they might give you permission. After all, if yourvideo goes viral, so will their music.

There's also plenty of free music on the Web. Try searchingfor creative commons music download andyou'll find plenty of tunes. But when you pick a tune, be careful to read theconditions on free use of that particular music.
