"Only A Moron Would Buy YouTube"... Gotta Love Cuban

You gotta love Mark Cuban. In his latest public speech, he says only a moron would buy YouTube due to the potential lawsuits from copyright violations.  Also the latest report from comScore Media Metrix doesn't help YouTube's valuation and potential sale:

MySpace Leads in Number Of U.S. Video Streams Viewed Online, Capturing 20 Percent Market Share; Yahoo! Ranks #1 in Number of People Streaming

comScore Media Metrix, the leader in digital media measurement, today released an enhancement to its U.S. Video Metrix service, with the inclusion of Flash video content as part of the monthly rankings for streaming video sites.
More than 106.5 million people, or about 3 out of every 5 U.S. Internet users, streamed or downloaded video during the month of July.  In total, nearly 7.2 billion videos were streamed or downloaded by U.S.
Yahoo! Sites ranked as the top property by unique U.S. streamers with 37.9 million, followed very closely by MySpace, which attracted 37.4 million U.S. streamers.  Fast-rising YouTube ranked third with 30.5 million U.S. streamers, followed by the Time Warner Network (25.7 million U.S. streamers) and Microsoft Sites (16.2 U.S. million streamers).  (full press release)

I wonder what Mark Cuban would value Facebook at?
