In answer to his comment: Because you sold it to Google.

My thoughts as well. If you're going to sell out, you should fully anticipate that "the man" will just gut your company & let it bleed out. Maybe they bought it to kill it off, etc.

But you should still have the right to be pissed off on a personal level.

Not really. You give up that right when you traded it in for a cool billion.

Users should maybe be more pissed at him for selling, than Google for tying Youtube to their overall Google strategy.

(Not that anybody should be pissed over such an issue. Just saying.)
