You Tube vs UTube - Turn the problem on it's head for a solution?

I noticed YouTube faces UTube Lawsuit on El Reg when I came in this morning. While discussing it amongst colleagues (and I don't pretend to know the ins and outs o fthe legalities involved in the suit), it occurred to me that these folks were missing a giant opportunity here.

The way I read it is that the basis of their problems stems from:

In the suit, Universal Tube alleges that its traffic has soared from around 1,500 hits in a month to over two million because of vast numbers of visitors looking for "lewd and other disgusting video".

The answer, as I see it is really simple. Get hold of a Try and buy T2000 server to handle the load, and place some google ads on the page. The income from the ads would then fund the infrastructure upgrades.

Simple huh? :-)
