Default Semi-OT: Picking up on Cuban vs. Youtube

Some of you may remember a thread from a while ago (might have been the start of the season, might even be on the old board) which started off with Mark Cuban saying something like (this is not an exact quote): "Only a moron would buy Youtube." Some of you thought Cuban was dead wrong while I and maybe a few others (I'm not sure) felt he was making an excellent point (that the lawsuits were going to murder the buyer). Since then, Youtube has been bought by Google (who, it must be noted, are not morons at all in the technical areas, although their business sense isn't quite as proven). Things have been going fairly well for Google, partnering with entertainment companies like the NBA, who as most of us know Cuban is a part of through his team, the Mavs, but now Viacom is going after Google/Youtube, and they want a full billion dollars. A suit that not only would be potentially crippling on it's own if it wins, but would also encourage other companies to follow suit. So I wanted to hear what Cuban's detractors have to say now that it's going to get litigious. Thoughts?

Turns out he was right. He said the only reason they hadn't been sued was cos there was no one willing to put up the big money.

BTW, his latest blog entry from last week is even about how he subpeonaed them. Very interesting stuff...

I was one of the huge detractors, and Cuban has been wrong about so much of this so far that I'm willing to bet that he'll continue to be wrong, but it's interesting that this thread was made. I recall a few months back when Stern said that the NBA would seek to have all of it's videos removed, someone started a thread basically saying, see, look, Mark Cuban was right... Youtube will be sued, organizations won't embrace it. A few months later, Stern announced that the NBA would partner with youtube, lol.

Everyone doesn't have to sue for it to be a problem. Viacom's lawsuit alone may make Youtube a poor investment, and if more follow Viacom's example (and someone probably will) Google will be regretting this move severely.

I think he was talking more about how the guy who made it wouldnt get paid like they wanted for it. But they did. They got like a billion dollars. Think they give a damn at this point what Google has to deal with?

Im sure on some level they care since it is their creation but ****....a billion dollars can wipe away a lot of tears.

I seriously doubt that youtube will end up being a poor investment on Google's part, and while that was the main gist of Cuban's statements, his actual statements were a little stronger. Youtube has proven to be successful so far and has begun partnering with media organizations... something Cuban failed to note could or would happen... not sure how he missed that. That's actually one of the things I said would happen...

Didn't Cuban say that whatever company bought youtube would be sued into oblivion or something like that?
