Opposing ViewPoints on YouTube

In the greatest irony, Mark Cuban blogged YouTube will turn out like Napster - out of business - on the same day that YouTube CEO Chad Hurley strikes a deal with Warner Music to prove Cuban's wrong. Cuban's article is deftly entitled, "The Coming Dramatic Decline of YouTube" (via). Hurley's deal is based on sharing ad revenue with Warner. Whether Cuban is right or Hurley is right, it will be interesting to watch. I bet this will turn out to be an execution game. It will be hard for Hurley to keep trumpeting these mega-deals without delivering something of value. If the revenue share paid to Warner proves insignificant, YouTube will be out of luck, out of allies, and out of business.
