After reading this story, my opinion of Google has been impacted negatively. Their attitudes, views, and actions are fairly reminiscent of Robber Baron times. I can find no motive for this change in service other than greed. What are your opinions about YouTube's change in policy and service?


  1. Interesting. I hadn't heard about this.

  2. This seriously bites! And agree with you on the Robber Baron times. I believe that you tube will suffer and that a lot of people will pull their accounts.
