YouTube Finds Profits?


4:45 PM -- Today on Contentinople:

  • YouTube and controversial singer Chris Brown are cashing in on a video of a wedding party getting down to Brown's "Forever," after it racked up more than 13 million views on the site. This case study -- a much more profitable one than the also-popular Susan Boyle clips -- may lead YouTube to a monetization strategy. But is it ethical for YouTube to profit from someone else's content, when those who created the video aren't getting anything out of it?

  • Not many consumers are "cord cutting" -- or cutting back on pay-TV services -- yet, but there is mounting evidence suggesting that those who are, are using broadband video services as an alternative.

And in today's News Bits, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer defends the Microsoft-Yahoo search deal.
