Can Daily Motion challenge YouTube

Posted on Sunday, November 19 2006 @ 05:27:03 CET by LSDsmurf

BusinessWeek has an article about Daily Motion, a French video-sharing site that has about 16 million page views a day. About half of the movies are in French and many of the rest in English.
As the video-sharing phenomenon spreads worldwide, one of the few local sites to tackle the YouTube behemoth has emerged in the heart of Old Europe. With 9,000 new videos pouring in each day and daily page views surpassing the 16 million mark, Paris-based site Daily Motion looks poised to grab a piece of Europe's fastest-growing online audience.

It's not surprising that France, with its strong cultural and linguistic identity, should give rise to a non-English video-sharing site. In fact, Daily Motion (www.dailymotion.com) actually was online before YouTube, which formally became a part of Google (GOOG) on Nov. 14.

I have some doubts whether Daily Motion will continue to grow as hard in the future. One of the reasons many people visit that site is to watch copyrighted material. It looks like Daily Motion doesn't give a damn about copyrights, their site filled with dozens of popular TV shows like almost all seasons of The Simpsons, South Park, Futurama, Family Guy, ... Once they are forced to remove all this content they may lose a lot of popularity.
