YouTube developing its business plan; strikes deals with MGM, Lionsgate, CBS, + European Fremantle to show full length movies and shows

News:  YouTube is striking more content deals with Hollywood — MGM, Lionsgate, CBS, + European Fremantle — to show full length shows and movies on YouTube.   Rumors are that YouTube is seeking similar deals with Sony and Time Warner. (More)

Analysis:  It will be very interesting to see if YouTube settles its lawsuit with Viacom (and the class action).  As the economy tightens, YouTube may become more focused on business development and generating revenues.  On the other hand, getting a judgment on the DMCA safe harbor, if successful, would be worth a lot to YT.
