When is infringing copyright not infringing copyright?

When the photo credit is "screenshot"

Surely that should say "Screenshot FROM Youtube Video <INSERT LINK>"?

I was bemused by the phrase "Revved his engine to 290kmh" - wow - really? I can rev the engine of one car to 300kmh - you simply put the car on a rolling road - and rev to 7500rpm in 5th (top) gear.
