    what happened to edberg-becker wimbledon videos?? it looks like they're gone.

    sure it was the whole match and probably copyright-protected, but was this really threatening any sales.

    i see so much commercial stuff disappearing.... but i hadn't thought of pat benatar in about 10 years, and looked up here video on youtube.com. now it's gone. isn't it good advertising for pat?? and i think it would only serve to increase her video sales (if there are any) as youtube isn't the best quality.

    my question though is this: i'll put in youtube's address and it's tell me it's doing some upgrades. can't remember what it says but it's the cartoon scientist with the test-tube. then i'll see a link here to a youtube.com video, click on it and it plays. then i'll go back to direct youtube.com and it'll still be under construction... i don't understand why that's the case.

    thanks in advance!!

    Yeah - there also was a ton of Sampras matches on youtube.

    All gone. You can thank Google for that.

    google purchased youtube, and they've been taking the copyright issues more seriously.

    i certainly respect the companies' rights to enforce their property rights... but i don't think it's smart in many cases. i think youtube is great advertising for different things as the quality isn't the best..... like i mentioned pat benatar, or i would have no idea on the rick james/dave chappelle skit without youtube, and now i may buy the season 2 tape (and good chance i would have before it was taken down)
