Hosting Issues

Rumours reach me that both Limelight and Vitalstream are in trouble on two fronts - copyright infringements (apparently, Akamai is about to sue both of them) - and capacity issues.

I also hear that Youtube is moving business away from Limelight by setting up their own peering arrangements.

This is a tight marketplace with only Mirror Image and Savvis as the other key players, so these developments, if true, are likely to have considerable implications.
