AOL launches YouTube rival
At last, instead of just complaining about how simple it would be to clone YouTube, someone has actually gone and done it. AOL's launch of its new UnCut Video -- which, like YouTube, is a website for posting and sharing video clips -- drew criticism from Mashable's Pete Cashmore for being "too early" and "seriously lacking in functionality." The Internet-hipster blog BlackRimGlasses calls AOL "late to the party" but predicts that YouTube won't be able to compete with AOL's "marketing muscle." Just one question here: What is AOL (owned, like, by Time Warner) going to do when illegal copies of Bugs Bunny cartoons start showing up on the service?
