<rant> This sort of thing should be banned:- people complaining like they are because they were "here first"! So what? I was here before someone younger than me, does that give me any more right than them to live? Nope! STOP BEING PETTY!! </rant>

People always think they have authority of a name simply because they thought of it first, which isnt true. It has to be legally copyrighted to do that. So my rant is with people who claim they got the name first therefore they have more authority. Just isnt true.

i dont really care for youtube to be honest. just a way for people to goof around at school (mainly when im trying to do my work, then the teacher goes on to a half hour lecture about the damn thing) and it really pisses me off.

i don't blame utube.com for having to at least do something about it. and jesus, can't people spell it properly? utube.com is not youtube.com :evil:

if theres a million hits on utube when they meant youtube, whats wrong with these people?

as for utube sueing youtube, i dont care. they can do what they want. i don't know why they don't come up with a different site name, perhaps "www.universaltube.com"? that works, and it makes more sense to be honest, but perhaps its already taken. DKDC (dont know, dont care)

ahh i see now, didn't understand before.

so only now they are deciding to sue? Not when it was first made?

If they are getting so many hits, why not just put a few ads up and make some cash :D
