 "I think they will see a lot more lawsuits if they don't change the policy from what YouTube is doing because there's a lot of copyrighted content up there now," said Jack Lerner, a fellow at the Samuelson Clinic at the University of California at Berkeley.

Google's deep pockets "alone will cause a lot of lawsuits," Lerner said. "Whether or not those end up being successful and really hurting Google's implementation of YouTube remains to be seen, and whether they'll have any legs remains to be seen, but...many, many people think that YouTube hasn't been bought yet until now for that very reason."
