‘Inquirer’ Gets To Heart Of YouTube Purchase


If you hadn’t heard, yesterday Google bought YouTube for 1.65 billion dollars. (And they said you couldn’t base a business on copyright infringement.) Blinq’s Dan Rubin looks into the deal, and brings up the most important part of the whole deal, in fact, the aspect of the deal that has Wall Street buzzing today:

Will Philadelphia Will Do and the 700 Level Get to post clips of stupid local TV news tricks and Lito Sheppard’s great return?

Yeah, I was wondering what this deal meant for me, too. (Not really.) Fortunately, he then leaves it to Mark Cuban to sift though rest of the complexity of the deal. Glad to see that’s all settled.
