thats a lot of cash......I think its a bad thing, Google is going to be another AT&T (for the old people like you gumbie) or Microsoft for the younger people.

This better not mean that YouTube is getting rid of its music video collection; I bet Google is a lot more cooperative with the record companies than the old YouTube.
