Reuters is reporting Time Warner will take its concerns of YouTube copyright violations to its new parent, Google.
“You can assume we’re in negotiations with YouTube and that those negotiations will be kicked up to the Google level in the hope that we can get to some acceptable position,” Parsons told The Guardian.
Considering Google acquired a 5% stake in Time Warner’s AOL unit, I wouldn’t expect to see any legal battles, anytime soon. I’m sure they’ll come to an agreement. Time Warner’s likely glad the new owner is a partner of theirs.
