YouTube owns you...


Before slapping another one of those adorable videos of Max up on the screen, YouTube.com users need to check out the fine print!

According to this post at BoingBoing, YouTube.com has changed it's terms and conditions, saying that once you upload your video, they have complete royalty-free ownership. That means that the next cute baby, dog, or music video posted could be sold to any major advertising firm with nada going to the original uploader.

I wonder if there is a connection with this coming on the heels of the success of Evolution of Dance?

Will it blow my cool if I say that it looked like a huge hit of acid? I then had to track down what it was based on and I think my brain snapped. If there was an inside joke, I completely missed it. If you'll excuse me I'm going to crawl back under the rock.
