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.

Lol, not unless that notice goes up before you can get to any page.

That's like you reading this post, then I say, "You owe me $1,000".

It doesn't work that way.

You're free to have all the uninformed personal opinions you want. I guess.

As are you. It's a free world. But if you want to have a conversation, feel free to stick with facts. Trolling will get you nothing but a bad reputation.

Even if in that case it is merely the EULA. I am guessing that microsoft would no be as nice if you break their EULA

Obviously it doesn't. Just by visiting a page does not bind you by the ToS. However... continuing to use it time and time again is a different story.
