Now that YouTube is becoming part of Google (link), it needs to begin acting like a respectable company. First order of business is the eliminating of copyright infringing content is par for the course.
Eventually I suspect that even the uploads will be heavily monitored before posting … much like Google Video? Is it time to start looking for the next YouTube?
🙁 According to a few stories, video clips from a variety of popular television programs including ones from Viacom’s Comedy Central like “South Park, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show” will be removed; it was just a matter of time.
UPDATE 10/31/2006: Viacom and YouTube reach a deal to allow clips to remain on the popular video sharing site according to a post on 606tech.com.
