Murdoch: This isn't Your Tube.. it's My Tube

December 23, 2005 1:13 PM

Rupert Murdoch's recent acquisition of MySpace has already led to at least one change at the online hotspot... no more video from YouTube. MySpacers are fighting back.

How long until MySpace changes their policy back? Mr. Murdoch is about to learn himself a lesson -- either conform to the rule of the internet, or see his $500 million investment go down the youtube.

UPDATE: Sure enough, Murdoch caved. YouTube is back on MySpace... and it made the New York Times to boot.

Somehow, this change doesn't affect me at all. Not knowing what MySpace or YouTube is....

I'm such an old fogey...

I'd have loved to check out the youtube group on mySpace, except everytime I type in the address it boots me out of my account and back to the sign in page. Does anyone know, has it been deleted?

Yesterday, I talked to a couple of 17-year-olds I know, and they both knew about MySpace. Sounds like it is very popular among high school students.

But, they didn't know about YouTube.
