The Blinkx tech has been known about for years and their success at monetizing Internet video has been apparent now for at least 12 months. Given their seemingly superior (patented) tech in probably the hottest area it does seem strange that there have been no formal approaches. In this last couple of years more than one early stage business has been snapped up by one of the majors just for their perceived potential. Maybe the Blnx tech and business model are simply so far removed from what everyone else is doing that their continued success simply does not carry credence with it. Not that I am complaining as I anticipate that the next twelve months will demonstrate to even the most blind that Blnx is a behemoth in the making........at which point there may well be an undignified scramble between majors, which could well drive the share price to new heights. Lovely prospect......
Don't forget that, as I understand it, Google's YouTube employs shed loads of people to constantly monitor the video content to ensure they are not falling foul of copyright etc etc. With Blinkx all that is done automatically plus their business model means they do not act as host. What's not to like?
