Re: Content ID
Indeed. Twitch is already heavily, heavily, entrenched as the leader in this space. Gaming is a huge sector for Youtube already, so it's no surprise they wanted a piece here, but I would say they would have to do something unique to entice broadcasters to switch from Twitch. Competitor hitbox.tv offered monetary parterships to all broadcasters (Twitch requires you to hit certain milestones first), and even that didn't work out so well for them. Twitch's VOD service is often complained about - Youtube might be able to push the built-in synnergy there with non-live Youtube. Still, having heard day 1 complaints about the Content ID system you mentioned from many broadcasters, I'm setting my expecations pretty low here.
