TechCrunch's Arrington Gets A Cease & Desist from YouTube

By Li Evans

Techcrunch Not technically in the realm of Internet Marketing, however I felt this was a little bit interesting to pass on to the audience.  TechCrunch has received an email and a letter from Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (the Silcon Valley law firm that represent about 90% of all tech companies on the West Coast) to cease and desist in regards to YouTube (or is that GooTube/GoogTube now?).

Googleyoutube_1 Why?  All because he developed a small tool that allows you to download YouTube videos to your hard drive and then port them over to your iPod.  Go figure, I guess receiving 1.67 Billion does go to your head.

Well it's hit Techmeme - so I guess now this is considered even "bigger" news.
