I hope it's not true. If they would have bought it, they should have done it when it was justin.tv. 


I am afraid they will ruin it, I don't know how. What if they ask to pay a subscription to see anything in HD, that would be fucked up, I don't know man. I mean they're not stupid, but when they see they're not making as much money as they want who knows what they'll do.

I hope it's not true.  Too much of the old concentration of ownership as it is, we don't need more.

@hystavito  YGoogle is trying to ban gameplay videos on Youtube, so what the hell, hope not. Wish more people used Dailymotion, much better quality then youtube

And if Dailymotion was bigger it'd be happiness and rainbows?

But it is odd how monopolization happens on the Internet so easily. One entity becomes popular and EVERYONE goes there.
