Literally, it might be known as Voustube, Voitubo or Vocetubo, but the world's most popular video-sharing site introduced local-language sites in nine countries on Tuesday that will all just go by YouTube.
Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, the co-founders of YouTube, which was acquired by Web search leader Google Inc. for $1.65 billion last year, told a news conference here that the nine country sites will eventually feature locally popular content.
YouTube unveiled national sites for Brazil (http://www.youtube.com.br), Britain (http://youtube.co.uk), France (youtube.fr), Ireland (youtube.ie), Italy (http://it.youtube.com), Japan (youtube.jp), the Netherlands (youtube.nl), Poland (youtube.pl) and Spain (youtube.es).
Google launches YouTube local language sites [uk.reuters.com]
Find, share and upload videos: YouTube is now in the UK
However it goes to: uk.youtube.com and not youtube.co.uk as it says in the first post.
Not much else to say apart from will there still be russian p*rn on youtube.co.uk? lol :)
There's currently a law firm's name on it so I expect Google Japan got it given to them.
Perhaps this actually delayed it...
