Analysis:  Perhaps YouTube is so well known now that the motto became expendable in the design of the front page.   Perhaps YouTube had trouble securing a trademark in the phrase (if, e.g., others had already been using it).  If YouTube doesn’t use the motto going forward, it will eventually abandon any claim to trademarking it.  Either way, I liked the motto and am sad to see it disappear from YouTube.
