    Yeah, and they already have it. We won't have our videos or anything. (Wasn't YouTube made by a bunch of teens?)

    I'm not entirely sure we'll have to worry about all of our videos, etc going by that article.

    It seems Youtube have been taking steps so that won't happen.

    While most videos posted on YouTube are homemade, the site also features volumes of copyrighted material — a problem that has caused some critics to predict the startup eventually would be sued into oblivion.

    But Hurley and Chen have spent months cozying up with major media executives in an effort to convince them that YouTube could help them make more money by helping them connect with the growing number of people who spend most of their free time on the Internet.

    As its negotiations with Google appeared to be near fruition, YouTube on Monday announced new partnerships with Universal Music Group, CBS Corp. and Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Those alliances followed a similar arrangement announced last month with Warner Music Group Inc.

    The truce with Universal represented a particularly significant breakthrough because the world's largest record company had threatened to sue YouTube for copyright infringement less than a month ago.

    Like how, Roxas? You mean by the fact of copyright material?

    Youtube mainly did it to avoid copyrights, and also that is alot of money. Nothing is going to change to the site it will still be the same youtube we know, it will just be also owned by Google, the same guys are still running it, who knows maybe the takeover can help make the quality of the uploads better
