Vice President of Global Communications for Google, Inc. responded to a question about the lawsuit against Youtube. He didn’t seem to concerned. As you can tell by the string of posts, I was not impressed by Mr. Schrage, or by what he had to say about Google. You can read more about the lawsuit here.
My advice: find an alternative. Unless Google doesn’t stop burning through their reserves of good will, you are going to see a drop in their value as a company. China sensorship, HotAir sensorship, news feed sensorship — not a great track record. And in today’s new media world, this is how easy regular citizens can share what they think about a service provider.
