I just read an interesting post on Jack of All Blogs about YouTube and their business model.
Basically the point is that YouTube doesn’t have a business model yet, but since much of their content is copyrighted, the moment they’d decide to place advertising in the beginning of each video, they would be sued.
It’s an interesting issue, since the Web 2.0 idea about democratizing content and building so much upon user contributions is of course hard to control, but in YouTubes case even harder to turn into an income.
I have the feeling though, that they will find a way…
