    Problems with YouTube!

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    Well looks like it's starting... Quite a few analysts were amazed at Google's anouncment of buying up YouTube (the streaming video posting site) for a 1.6 Billion dollar sum and running it as independent entity. But estimates have been published saying that up to 60% of YouTube content involves copyrighted/trademarked material that YouTube does not have the rights too, and represents a serious legal liability... And the legal arguments that YouTube is making, that it only provides the service, and the liability belongs to the Users posting the copyrighted material, is exactly the same arguments that Napster made, and was eventually rejected by the courts... When YouTube was still considered a high risk tech startup and losing money hand over fist, no one bothered suing YouTube as you can't get blood from a stone. But with the deep pockets of Google in the picture... As an example of the upcoming issues, there's this recent webnews article...

    YouTube purges 30,000 copyright files - Tech News & Reviews - MSNBC.com:

    I wonder how many of these 30,000 files are Anime related?!?! Bandai Visual of Japan has said that they have two persons working full time looking for copyrighted material they own on YouTube, and average over 200 removal request per day. Some Analysts have publicly said that YouTube has less then a year before the lawsuits take it down, as the ability to selectively block copyrighted material is beyond the current technology. So, does YouTube has a valid business model? And if it doesn't, what does that say about video streaming hosting market in general??

    Google was just really upset about the fact that YouTube was having more traffic on the site. Well, I'm betting that the traffic will cut down because of this. I know people who just hopped onto YouTube to watch anime without having to download it.

    Interesting enough, YouTube ranks 3rd in video streaming offerings, as both My Space and Yahoo have a bigger percentage share of video traffic...

    I might be a bit pessimistic but Google buying Youtube meant the end of Youtube and what it stands for.
