Not that it's a good idea though.
I agree. I thought the song was beautiful and I didn't notice any pitch alterations. And it's true, I would think they would have had to change the pitch of the entire song or something would have sounded off. I don't upload copywritten music to YouTube so I don't know if they do change the pitch of songs to get around the legal issues.
Of course I don't claim to have a degree in music and I cannot sing a note to save my life but I know when I hear a song I love. And if they altered that song then I can honestly say that the original must be as close to perfection as one can get. And I would love to be able to hear it in another format but for right now YouTube is all some of us have.
