    I'm not sure. I'd imagine the FCC could get involved if they did, but I'm not really sure.

    well no they couldn't just go in from the browser because that would require the iphone to have flash, and without the native youtube application on the iphone, ipod, and ipad there would be no way to view the youtube videos. In terms of the FCC stepping in, there would be no grounds to step in on, in no way does it violate the monopolization law, or the Anti-Competitive Regulatory Laws so i don't think so.

    well you can get on youtube but you can't play the videos, and yeah i agree with net neutrality but in this case it isn't on the internet. Its an application on the iphone itself, and just as apple can ban apps from its own app store, the developer of the app should be able to do the same

    Why would google want to do this... it would cost them ad revenue from apple users, as well as force them to use alternatives like daily motion and sites like that.

    P.S. Tip dont hold the mic so close to your lips.

    don't hold the mic so close to your mouth, it's hard to understand you.

    not going to make excuses, just using a low quality mic (its from rock band), broke the microphone port on my laptop so hehe. Anywho, i mean just on the iphone, ipad, and ipod. Well considering the recent attacks apple is making at google's android, wouldn't not being able to play youtube videos be something that would draw people away from the iphone. Would give android a huge boost.

    honestly I think it would be funny for them to do that, but just do not think they will

    Would also be very easy to file another lawsuit, for anticompetitive behavior.
