Google to buy YouTube?
We've heard this story before. Almost every possible acquisition candidate, from tradional media firms to large online media players, has been rumored to acquire YouTube. Though there are strong arguments behind such stories, execution challenges, most importantly the copyright issues with YouTube's content, are real challenges that remain to be resolved. Mark Cuban has a good argument on why Google should not buy YouTube.
