All Your Video Are Belong to Google


In confirming its $1.65 billion stock purchase of YouTube, Google promise the site will run independently for the foreseeable future but Google will ad its AdWords adverting program to the site. Google lawyers were mum on the prospect of getting the crap sued out of them for all those un-copyrighted videos infesting YouTube. It's unclear at this point whether or not Google Video and YouTube will become one in the future.

If my Google ad representative brings up a YouTube buy in our next call I'm going to videotape myself throwing up on her.

Your Video are belong to Google ??
Was this written by those same guys in Shanghai (or Redondo Beach, I always confuse the two) who seem to compose all the follow-up emails for 90% of eBay electronics purchases ("We have send your item from Hong Kong, please to give 15 day, maybe more, for nice delivery...")? :-)

Dear Mr. Whipple,
While the copyediting prowess of the Adranter is often dubious, get with the program...

Thank you very much, poster. I figured there'd be at least one person who wouldn't get it.

What's that horrible sound?? Oh, it's just 10,000 copyright attorneys simultaneously sharpening their knives.

At this moment, Mark Cuban is awaiting another opportunity to state the obvious and create his "I told you so!" video for YouTube upload.
