Google probably isn't buying YouTube

Recently, as in the past few days, there have been rumors all over the internet that say that Google is in talks to buy out YouTube. While it has been confirmed that they are in talks, I doubt that it is for a buyout.

I personally believe that there is no reason for Google to buy them out, and they are crazy if they do. Google has more engineers to work on products, so they have no intentions of aquiring technology, and Google is doing decently with its own service. Also, they would just be setting themselves up for lawsuit madness if they were in charge. I see these talks going in a different direction. I think that Google is likely planning an advertising deal like they did with MySpace.

The only reason people are assuming buyout is because YouTube wants to be bought out. Besides Google always seems to like snatching things up before they get big and expensive, like they did with Writely. I can't wait to see what is really going on.
