The reason I'm asking is because I just started watching Young Justice and in it *spoilers* The Young Justice team goes up against the League of Shadows who are using nanotechnology to destroy buildings, one of the buildings is STAR Labs

Then in Throne of Atlantis STAR Labs is shown being rebuilt. Also it ends with an after credits stinger showing Lex teaming up with the main villain
Killah Priest - "because ROOOK SAID SO DO YOU NEED ANY MORE REASON."

YJ and Throne of Atlantis aren't part of the DCAU. I think the Throne of Atlantis movie might be part of the DC Animated Movie Universe, in continuity with all the other recent movies, distinct from the DCAU.

Not entirely. There will be 1 film per year that will be independant from the others. Last year it was Batman: Assault on Arkham. This year it will be the upcoming Justice League: Gods And Monsters film. All other movies released this year will be in the same canon.

TC, there is an article on Kotaku with information about DC's "struggle with its lack of consistency on stories in its universe"

Just remember everyone, DC decided on its own to have Infinite Crisis. No one made them do it. I still like DC but holy crap they need to get their stuff in order.
