    YouTube: The Beginning of the End...

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    The latest chapter of this high tech soap opera is just started...
    MTV owner Viacom Inc. said Tuesday it has sued YouTube and its corporate parent Google Inc. in federal court for alleged copyright infringement and is seeking more than $1 billion in damages.
    Viacom sues YouTube for $1 billion
    Viacom said YouTube’s business model, “which is based on building traffic and selling advertising off of unlicensed content, is clearly illegal and is in obvious conflict with copyright laws.”

    Viacom said YouTube has avoided taking the initiative to curtail copyright infringement on its site, instead shifting the burden and costs of monitoring the video-sharing site for unauthorized clips onto the “victims of its infringement.”

    "YouTube appropriates the value of creative content on a massive scale for YouTube's benefit without payment or license," Viacom said in its complaint. "YouTube's brazen disregard of the intellectual-property laws fundamentally threatens not just plaintiffs but the economic underpinnings of one of the most important sectors of the United States economy."

    Since YouTube has long had a marketing policy based on the posting of pirated material, legal challenges are not that surprising... So, any bets on how much time YouTube has left????

    =} Everyone Go Download Fast~!!

    Don't think other sites won't form.

    When something closes, something new opens. Bleh~ Whatever happens happens, its not like I am the one stealing it.

    (-_-) No one wants to watch it on TV, end of Story~!

    Youtube will be closed, and other Video browsers will grow.

    I bet the others are w00ting for it~!!

    Its Google we're talking about here. Google will most likely fight this, or it just might bow to their wishes and close youtube, concidering the hit its stock took when this was announced: GOOG - Google Inc. - Google Finance

    But lets face it, If Youtube falls, another will take its place, and this time it'll be set up in a country that can't be touched by copyright law. 'tis the nature of the interweb
