    Baidu Q3 to Invest USD23mn in

    My 'real' reply is the message after this one, but here I just wanted to offer one small, but important clarification on Qiyi. It's not a youtube type site (whereas Yoku and Tudo definitely are) becaue you and I can't post content to it. Instead, it's more like the site, in that you or I would go there to watch TV shows, movies or other studio produced stuff, but not videos made by one another.

    That difference is actually important (and to Bidu's overall advantage) in that this way we don't have to worry about the CCP's potential censorship war on content. The other day when the CCP released that statement concerning social networks, etc. Sina, Yoku, and Tudo all crashed, but since Bidu's staying away from user content, it didn't.

    Ha, I've actually written more words than this detail probably deserves, but basically Qiyi being hulu and not youtube should help keep Bidu out of the CCP's crosshairs.
