So what's so special about hulu ?

Startup #2:

So, what's so special about VuMe ?
All kinds of user generated video exactly like YouTube.....However, user get paid for the videos they created and uploaded, based on how well their content had performed.

Alright, what's the catch you say ? Though this model of getting paid for posting video is differentiating them from the other online video sharing site, how long will it take other online video sharing site existing or new startups to copy this model as well ? Will you or the audience still want to come back VuMe as before ?

What do you think ?
