YouTube has begun testing a sub-set of their partners with a charge for download. Most of them are available for about $.99 but only as MP4 files. They can be purchased through Google Checkout. This may put an end to the problems that site has had with studios like Warner. If the program is successful, look for them to allow all of its partners to charge for movies and TV shows on the site.

I think they are getting away from the initial reason why YouTube was started. I guess that's what happens when a behemoth like Google buys you out and decides they have a better idea. Anyway, there are too many YouTube rippers on the market! :cool:
