The end of Youtube it was sued over copyright infringement

August 17, 2007

Could this be the end of YouTube?  Many greedy companies have started suing YouTube for copyright infringement.  Even soccer players and weather forecasters.   Viacom recently sent over 100,000 notifications for youtube to delete clips from shows that they produce.  Some of these shows are shows like the Daily Show, Colbert Report, VH1, and Nickelodeon.  What they may not realize is that these clips don’t take away viewers from their shows it only adds to the views.  If I watched a Stephen Colbert Clip on the internet and thought it was funny I would be more inclined to watch their next show at 11:30 pm on Comedy Central.  What Viacom needs to do is team up with youtube because Viacom’s website dosn’t have a very good video service.  Is this the end of YouTube?  No it is not.
