Google acquired YouTube!?

Apparently, it seems that Google has bought YouTube for a whopping $1.65 Billion worth in stock! :o :o

I really wonder if this has been a smart move, especially since I read an article on Slashdot a couple of weeks ago entitled Only a 'Moron' Would Buy YouTube in which a really good point is being made concerning the seemingly endless copyright violations on YouTube.

I also listened through the (audio) webcast conference call in which some very interesting questions were being answered.

I guess only time will tell.. I just hope Google knows what they're getting into (apparently they do or they wouldn't have spent $1.65 Billion, but still..).
