You guys are nuts? Do you know how hard the government of Japan would come down on this deal!!?? ITS A SOCIALIST COUNTRY... just think of Yahoo going into france to buy Daily motion.... government intervention... its like blackberry and canada... u cant just sell a country';s brand like that.
The only nut here is the one who calls Japan a "socialist country". Do you understand the concepts of social ownership and central planning? How does that fit into Japan's economic structure? Just because Japanese government serves the people's interests, it does not make it socialist.
