    If there's a demand.

    there will be a supply cause you can make nice money.

    so, in that aspect... it is cyclical.

    Ad revenue.

    More people who visit = more popular = can charge more for ad space.

    Also, they own some legal rights to some videos.

    If this is the lost revenue Viacom is complaining about, somehow my "pity metre" is registering at zero.

    I think they should compete or reach an agreement with Google like some other companies have evidently done before taking them to court.

    Seriously, I want to hear more about Viacom's side of this. Right now it just sounds like it will go something like this:

    Viacom: You owe us money!
    Google: How?
    Viacom: YouTube has copyrighted material with millions of views!
    Google: We're not responsible for what users put up.
    Viacom: You should have a filter!
    Google: And you would suggest...? We have been working on developing one, you know.
    Viacom: Well, uh...
    Judge: Shut up and stop whining, Viacom.

    Ah, if only.

    That said I agree that YouTube shouldn't be allowed to host entire TV show episodes and that kind of thing, but I'm of the opinion that companies should be cashing in on this instead of complaining. "Gosh, watching TV online is popular? Let's provide higher-quality streaming for a fee!" or for ad revenue, or whatever. Online is great because if the show isn't normally available in your country (at all, or right away, or if it's an older episode), you can watch it now. The people who use YouTube have hit on a great idea, and it's up to the companies who own those rights to realize it and use it to their benefit. Simply shutting down YouTube isn't going to get Viacom what they want.

    charging to watch things online is what google video is doing and downloading sit com episodes and movies is what itunes is doing. i really don't care much for youtube anymore. ever since it has gone to google it's been shit. like cpr said we'll probably find another provider that will be just as big as youtube.

    I would bet money that the creators who actually had the copyrights to things like yugio or naruto did NOT go to youtube and request it from being taken down. Heck, they like fansubbers for increasing the popularity of the anime/manga.

    If they really did give a shit, this site and many others hosting licensed anime would be gone.

    BLIND I say! BLIND!

    for starters, the format on the webbie changed. The types of videos you'll see featured changed. Stuff like that. =/

    Edit:
    Just an interesting fact for you.... Viacom is the 2nd largest US Media Company. It's right after Time Warner and before AT&T, Disney-ABC, and GE-NBC. Viacom makes $10.7 bill in media revenue. Err... yea... I'm taking a mass communications class. =P

    not the creators...of course not, but the producers did. For instant, family guy videos have gone down a lot. Disney videos have gone down a lot. There are many and i believe they are starting to remove AMV's too. Those are just some examples...i mean there are a lot more too. Stuff like UFC fights are up for like 2 days, then removed.

    Personally i dont mind about the featured videos. I rarely watch them...and besides, when you go to youtube, you usually know what you want to watch. If not, you either A) watch the featured videos. B) go to the "most viewed" videos. C) watch the higest reviewed videos. D.) Just do a random search.

    Waiiiiiiit, when was the last time you actually saw a music video on MTV? I stopped watching that station, because all they seem to show are those raunchy depraved teen shows(as opposed to ruanchy, depraved music video's, which I actually enjoy).
