when google announced they were purchasing youtube for $1.65 million in october i viewed the deal as a sign of bad things to come and i documented as much in my post, “all good things must come to an end”. now that viacom is slamming google with a copyright infrigement lawsuit claiming damages of one billion dollars i can’t say i’m all that surprised. seriously, who didn’t see this one coming? nothing good ever comes out of these things…i will most miss the stephen colbert videos on you tube.
