the rising of more and more web sites like myspace or youtube that
spreads all over the world music and videos, on a completely illegal

No. Why do you say so? How music and video (="content") are spread and
licensed has _nothing_ to do with how the *software* to play them is
distributed and licensed. In both ways.

because what is played on these sites are mp3's and made by users. I wonder if most of these users have a licence to _build_ mp3's

No again. This is like saying that, if an artist doesn't want to paid
for his or her music, this puts the makers of DVD players in a very
difficult position. These are two completely separate issues.

I don't speak of content but of file format. how do you think the uploaded files are made of?
