I don't think it matters, YouTube's automated software doesn't make the distinction between a private and non-private video. You'll get an advisory email sometimes within 10 seconds of the video being uploaded explaining what the situation is. If I'm lucky, I'll just be advised that the material is copyrighted, but the record companies are fine with this as long as adverts are placed on the YouTube page.
EDIT: To prove my point, I have just received this email, even though the video hasn't finished processing yet: " Your video "The Chris Moyles Show - The Final Show - 14th September 2012", may have content that is owned or licensed by WMG, but it’s still available on YouTube! In some cases, ads may appear next to it.
