    Sure, i think what this guy did was wrong, but to take off small clips of nice plays and stuff like that are just silly, thats when companies just get greedy


    stocks, like ten years ago you could get a nice share for 10 bucks, now its like 45-50

    Try again, 1 share of Google goes for basically $500 (which makes the company worth over $150B).

    Even when they had an IPO, shares started at over $100. I thought it was nuts. Guess I was wrong...

    Advertising and their mega-IPO a few years ago. They are THE biggest advertising source on the net.

    YouTube will avoid getting major lawsuits by making it tougher for people to post (and keep up) copyrighted works. They have to, since now that there is some real money behind YouTube (i.e. Google's billions) they become a target for lawsuits.

    And they announced that they will share some of the advertising profits with the people who post vids. That will help keep posters, which will keep viewers coming...
