Most people are now fully aware that Mark Cuban isn’t too fond of YouTube.
“Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban led a $1.7 million investment in Red Swoosh in August”
Take away all the copyrighted material and you take away most of Youtube’s traffic. Youtube turns into a hosting company with a limited video portal. Like any number of competitors out there that decided to follow copyright law.
like RedSwoosh perhaps?
This is guy with direct competing interests. He makes some decent points, but it’s fully self-serving. HE wants to control the online video market - albeit in a different way. And he’s complaining that YouTube is not playing fair because He’s upset because HE (redswoosh) is following copyright law so they (youtube) should too.
Just like whining to ther refs, right Mark?
3 other quick notes:
- Here is another of his posts that hints at his thoughts on this industry.
- He also owns 2929 Entertainment which is a production company - another area hurt(?) by the success of YouTube.
- Despite this post, I actually kind of like Mark Cuban. Anybody that called M. Night Shayamalan “stupid” in an interview isn’t all bad. His blog is a good read, and he does do some cool stuff.
