Google "Wired has obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent by Google to Microsoft today, demanding Microsoft immediately remove the YouTube app from its Windows Phone Store and disable existing copies on consumers' devices by May 22. The YouTube app for Windows Phone - developed by Microsoft not Google - strips out ads and allows downloading, both violations of YouTube's terms of service." Incredibly petty. Just come up with a solution, you bunch of kids.

On my Linux box right now, I have a plugin for Mozilla Firefox that blocks all ads and another one that allows downloading videos in either SWF or MP4 format directly from YouTube. What's Google's point?
