StartYourTube To Change Its Name. Anyone Surprised?

StartYourTube, the white label video site we covered last month that lets users create their own “branded YouTubes”, has decided to change its name. The company sent out the following email last week to its members:

Hi everyone ,

We have to choose another domain name for
Please take one minute to give us your choice

startyourtube team

Included in possible domain choices are “” and “”.

The wording seems to indicate that this isn’t exactly by choice (lawsuit anyone?). However, StartYourTube says that the company has decided on the name change on its own accord. Apparently users of the service want their content to stand on its own, without any kind of implied affiliation to YouTube.

Thanks to Mark Avey for the tip.
