    Netflix as it is isn't really a viable long-term business model.

    I wish them luck and maybe they can put Netflix out of business. I had a really bad experience with Netflix and I desire nothing but bad things to happen to them.

    From what I can understand from reading this, you can set up a payment requirement in the metaform which requires the end user to pay per view/download?

    But Google can also redistribute your content in anyway they desire royalty free?

    This is pretty interesting alright.

    Agreed, everything will be digital eventually. How far into the future that will be, however, is up for debate. Netflix's current business is pretty solid, and they are in a pretty good position to capitalize on their user base during the switch to all-digital media. They are at least exploring relationships with Tivo and other ways to switch to a digital business model.

    Hopefully they learned from Blockbuster's mistakes. For years blockbuster claimed that mail-order DVDs was a passing fad, and no threat to their business. When they finally launched their own mail order service, Netflix had already stolen a huge % of their market share.

    Yeah, I'd better start buying some Google stock "real" soon. They are definitely going to become the next Microsoft.

    These guys want to own the whole world. Of course, with file sharing technology one has to wonder why Google would think they would be able to generate sufficient revenue in this area.

    One of the biggest problems I see is people loading up video's which are not theirs and then google saying the old "can also redistribute your content in anyway they desire royalty free".

    How can the effectively police who is the actual owner of the content?

    I wonder when their stock will split. I just hope they are not spreading themselves to thin as opposed to concentrating on their core business which is information
