Have you read US copyright law and the DMCA?

Directly from the qualifications for safe harbor of a service provider:

"does not receive a financial benefit directly attributable to the infringing activity, in a case in which the service provider has the right and ability to control such activity"

YouTube -- no direct financial benefit
Amazon -- direct financial benefit

I'm not sure how it could be any more clear.

Not stupid, but possibly ignorant of the subtleties in the laws you're talking about.
