You can read about it at TechCrunch HERE.
It doesn't effect The Ark since I pay for it but I know that many of you began storing your videos on your own "Ninglets" last year and embedded them here to save us bandwidth. I'm not sure when this will take effect but I hope it doesn't effect you too adversely.
If you have a Ninglet and you store your vids there, make sure you have copies of those vids saved to your own computer so you don't lose them.
