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.

Yeah, but I least I do hope you understand the difference between the reality of things, and one's personal opinion of what they wish things were like. Which the previous poster seemed to have a fantastically hard time accepting.

I'm not arguing in pro or con against their policies. But just because a website provides something free of charge, it does not mean they are doing so without specific terms and conditions. You are free to go and challenge google's EULA in court, if you feel they are in the wrong.
