Google Acquires YouTube!!!

Google has officially acquired YouTube for a reported $1.65 bil. Now why would G buy YT when it has its own Video site. G is the new MS.

Question is what if all the copyrighted material were removed/banned outright? Will we see the same growth and same traffic? What if this ban was fulelled by say a conglomeration of institutions & MNCs.

As a core technologist, what interests me more is the Video Copyright Detection technology that YouTuibe is reportedly has… What might it be based on? Do they maintain a DB of all the feature vectors of all copyrighted material?
