    ..it's video purchase service.

    See what I did there. Scared you into reading the full article.

    Seriously though, Google are no longer going to be selling videos, ( if you didn't know about Google's premium videos, think iTunes, but with Google Video and you'll be in the right ball-park ) and, which is a smidge more important, no longer allowing the licences of previously bought videos to work. Come August 15th, any videos you have already downloaded will not authenticate and thus not play.

    Bet your glad you didn't buy any clips from them, eh?

    Cheers to [M]uuhh yet again for the head up. BBC News and Downloadsquad have more info.

    Cos http://video.google.com/ is better. They show all the results from Google and Youtube. I think they should ditch them both and create a new service instead of two.
