it’s all going on…

Universal Music and Sony BMG both do deals with YouTube, probably eliminating at a stroke (well, almost) the worst single video copyright infringement problem on the internet.

Google buys YouTube so now owns all the YouTube infringement in addition to those it hosts links to on Blogspot blogs.
