Thou Shalt Not Steal (thanks for stopping)

Congrats, GodTube... now Tangle.com.  I don't know what Tangle means, but I've railed before against Christians who claim parody or relevance in works that are obviously nothing more than straightforward copyright theft. 

I think that recently, Google filed copyright infringement suits against GodTube.com and JewTube.com for their names.  JewTube lost because it rhymed with YouTube.  GodTube did not lose.  (I think, I didn't follow any of this closely.)  Still, I think they're making the right move.  Tangle is far less memorable, so I'm a little puzzled by the name, but I'm still glad they made the choice to stand on their own and not take the work that YouTube's already done.
