    They'll buy Microsoft next. Or at least their underperforming arm, MSN.

    And yes it is official its even on Yahoo News

    And that it says:

    So I guess there are some minor things to tink out of the the deal.

    As far as copyright issues:

    So I am sure that is what is to be worked out eventually. I am sure a big time business would not buy into major trouble unless most of it can be dealt with legally before hand.

    I am still wondering why did they buy it. I mean they were perfectly fine with google videos. It would more understandable if they did not have google videos and then bought youtube. But I am sure that they can use those organic visitors.

    $1.6 billion! That's a hell of a lot of cash. Google must have some serious plans for monetizing it.

    Obviously they needed a big publisher that could publish video ads. With Youtube in hands, they have purchased just exactly what the doctor ordered.

    I am not sure about Yahoo but Microsoft is way behind the game. They are doing too many things at the same time and neither one of those so-called ventures has impressed me.

    I don't think it's far too complex to fathom for a person posting at DP.
