    YouTube has been purchased for $1.65bn by Google

    Haha I knew that this would eventually happen. Google couldn't let YouTube's 42% market share in videos go unnoticed. YouTube has turned down a bunch of offers in the past, but I guess they were just waiting to sell to Google.

    Tipem, you may want to remove the text of the article before the staff removes it for you and issues a copyright violation warning.

    Nope. Sitepoint is very clear on this. Copying the entire publication is a violation of copyright laws, and will not be tolerated on the forum.

    I think I was even busted once for doing it, but I don't recall, and my private messages with the staff are usually deleted every week to make room for new PMs.

    To quote the SitePoint forum rules:
    POSTING CONTENT FROM OTHER PEOPLE OR WEBSITES
    Copying any content from another person's work, or another website, is not allowed without express permission from the creater/owner of the original work. Even if you attribute the article correctly it is still copyright infringement. Do not reproduce substancial parts of articles or news items from other sites in the forums. If you don't have permission to copy something then always err on the side of caution and simply post a link to the material at its original location, or quote a short excerpt only, indicating where the quote came from. SitePoint shall not be held responsible for member-posted information that violates copyright.
