… I hope that in accordance with your mission “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful“, you will make that tiny little green “Live” word into a YouTube link, where I would be able to watch the game, without caring about in which country I currently am or which device I currently use.

amen to that
You know that this has nothing to do with Google, right? :)
Vladimir Ivashchenko You know that Google CAN solve this, right? :)
No, I don’t. How? I doubt that they have enough budget to buy worldwide rights for Olympics (just for US they cost $800m). Also, even if they were willing to spend that money, I doubt that IOC would sell to them, for political reasons.
Vladimir Ivashchenko This takes 3 things: political power, money, and technology. I think Google has enough of all three to solve this (maybe not by the next games though). They’ve solved much harder problems before, I think – Open Handset Alliance and Android, for example.
Olympic Games should be more public than they are now. After all they are larger paid for by taxes, not private team owners.
OK, its a nice wish. :) I don’t think that OHA or Android are in any matter more complicated subject than obtaining world political dominance. So far Google has lost in China, and actually I can’t recall any examples of Google getting rights for any major TV content. Not sure if that business is of interest to them.
BTW, NBC has exclusive US rights to Olympics until 2020, so it seems that your wish will have to wait at least until then. ;)
When did you become so cynical? When? :-)
