YouTube was created by a team of three person named Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim. They were working in Pay Pal. They made You Tube as a Video Sharing website where users could upload their videos, share their ideas and view the informative contents. The Domain Name “Youtube.com” was activated on 14 Feb 2005.

In 2006 YouTube entered into a marketing and advertising partnership with NBC. Every coin has two sides like that with these features and rapid success it also faced various problems which eventually led to outsourcing to Google who recently had just failed in their own video platform. The huge growth in traffic at YouTube created a big and different problems. Due to this company was continuously investing in their infrastructure like purchasing more computer equipment and more broadband connections for internet facilities.

In addition, it was forced to assign more financial resources for potential litigation, as many media houses blamed that that some of the videos uploaded on YouTube contained copyrighted material. Which creates a problem for You Tube as they had a limited resources, In November 2006, Google was prompted to purchase YouTube for $1.65 billion. After purchasing this site, instead of merging this sites, Google continued YouTube’s operation as before.

To avoid the risk of copyright problems, Google negotiated with various entertainment companies that would allow copyrighted video material to appear on YouTube and give YouTube users the right to include certain copyrighted songs in their videos. It also agreed to remove tens of thousands of copyrighted video files from YouTube.
