Five years ago, after months of late nights, testing and preparation, YouTubeís founders launched the first beta version of YouTube.com in May, with a simple mission: give anyone a place to easily upload their videos and share them with the world. Whether you were an aspiring filmmaker, a politician, a proud parent, or someone who just wanted to connect with something bigger, YouTube became the place where you could broadcast yourself.
Over time, these aspirations have created a vibrant and inspiring community that helped transform a murmur of interest into something far greater than any of us ever could have imagined. Today, thanks to you, our site has crossed another milestone: YouTube exceeds over two billion views a day. Thatís nearly double the prime-time audience of all three major U.S. television networks combined.
if broadcasters took to the web sooner and monetised it the way they do with adverts then presto EVERYONE is happy.
would also cut down illegal downloading as most people would just watch them on youtube
YouTube is the greatest illegal downloading site there is. I get a lot of my music from them, just copy paste a YouTube URL to a "youtube to mp3" site and presto, free .mp3.
I don't think any major player in music or TV is happy about YouTube.
What they aren't happy about are clips of their shows being shown on YouTube where they don't get any money, Google does.
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
Wow, you just admitted to being what you complain about. You steal music from Youtube? That isn't cool man.
In the case of Susan Boyle you only know who she is because of Youtube.
You would be wrong. There a tons of extremely popular, well paid and played musicians as well as record companies on Youtube who post their videos and receive revenue from it.
To those of you who use YouTube as a way of pirating film and music... I say shame on you.

an opinion someone else voiced in the G/wifi thread that you didn't quite agree with in there. Of course, G was on the other side of the argument in that thread, weren't they.
