I agree with Cuban that YouTube is unsustainable as it is. The Warner deal could be a sign of YouTube's morphing into a form of iTunes Store, where users can actually purchase content online, hopefully preventing most of them from sharing pirated versions.

I think Cuban singles out YouTube because video sharing is really all they do. Google has many other businesses it can rely on, so if it were to face a legal challenge on its video sharing, it wouldn't affect their overall business much. YouTube, on the other hand, relies on the sharing of videos, and I'll go out on a limb to say that most of those videos are copyrighted, so a legal action against YouTube would have a major impact on their business. Of course, they aren't making money anyway...but that's another story. ;)
