Google wants You Tube

It would appear that the search engine superstars, Google, are attempting to purchase the video-sharing website, You Tube.

YouTube, based in San Mateo, Calif., allows viewers to upload and share video and it estimates that over 100 million videos are watched everyday .It has been speculated that the privately held company would be sold or taken public – although one critic, Internet start-up developer Mark Cuban, was quoted as saying anybody who buys YouTube “is a moron.”

Can’t say I 100% agree with the “moron” statement, but according to recent news, You Tube might be getting into some serious legal trouble. If Google wants You Tube, they’re going to have to take all the lawsuits with it, which could end up being more trouble than it’s worth. At the same time, Google might try to “clean up” You Tube, erasing videos of licensed material. In other words, erasing 90% of You Tube. Can’t say I like the thought of that.
