Google May Buy Brightcove For $700 Million

Google’s getting grabby.  The evidence: on his blog last night, Matt Cutts invited Yahoo engineers to come work for the search giant.  This afternoon, Google announced its acquisition of reCAPTCHA.  And now, there’s word that Google is attempting to buy Brightcove, too.

Brightcove is an online video platform with over 200 partners.  The companies it has ties to include powerful ones like Adobe, AOL, comScore, Nielsen, and OgilvyInteractive.  Plus Google.
