12:48 EDTEBAY, AAPL, GOOGIcahn says eBay could 'easily' conduct an IPO of PayPal
Carl Icahn says "We believe eBay (EBAY) could easily conduct an Initial Public Offering of PayPal, selling 20% to the public. eBay would retain 80% of PayPal with control. Before the transaction is consummated the companies could enter into a long-term, commercially viable contract, preserving all synergies. This type of relationship is customary in partial IPOs and would be particularly important for eBay as currently, outside of PayPal, there does not exist a global payment processing solution competent enough to service eBay’s users. Luckily for PayPal, competitors such as Google (GOOG), Apple (AAPL) and many others do not yet have the same comparable scale and product offerings. We believe conducting a 20% IPO of PayPal – and creating two dedicated and highly-focused independent businesses – will provide the best opportunity for these businesses to remain competitive over the long-term. The 20% IPO structure should alleviate any concern of lost synergies. All of the “secret sauce” and “flywheels” would be preserved. A 20% IPO of PayPal could allow for all of the benefits of an independent PayPal, preserves all of the benefits of keeping PayPal in-house and could be structured so as to be tax free to shareholders."

07:53 EDTGOOGYouTube changes have diffused much of tension with copyright holders, FT says
YouTube, which implemented Content ID in 2007 to help producers manage their rights and generate revenues from copyright-infringing content, has hit $1B in payments to companies that participate in the program and Fred von Lohmann, legal director for copyright at Google, credits the program for diffusing much of the tension the site previously had with copyright holders, reported Financial Times. Via Content ID, copyright owners can “monetize” their content by allowing ads to be sold against it or have the video blocked and taken down and von Lohmann told Financial Times that the "vast majority" choose to monetize.
