A Google advocate would applaud Google's move this week. If you can't be a niche leader, there's no point in embarrassing yourself by being mediocre. I get it, but why didn't Google go the other way with this? Most free video-sharing sites are offering high-traffic filmmakers and Webcam hobbyists ad revenue-sharing deals. Why couldn't Google simply have promoted its storefront as a way for prolific clip culture personalities to generate incremental revenue streams by selling premium clips through Google Video?
