Backgrounder about YouTube from the Associated Press (April 9; via Newsvine):

For now, the 25-employee YouTube is subsisting on $US11.5 million invested by Sequoia Capital, the same venture capital firm that helped launch Google. Hurley and Chen hope to start selling video ads soon …

But that might pressure the company to do more to block pornographic videos. Though such clips violate YouTube’s policy, the AP recently found footage of strip-teasing women and of graphic sex scenes promoting other porn sites. YouTube aggressively removes such material after it receives complaints, but not before thousands watch.
