Online video’s rapid growth must appear tantalizing to players in the mature, slow-growing media sector. Audiences and advertising dollars are flooding the Internet. This year, Internet advertising will jump 30% to $16 billion, according to estimates by New York research firm eMarketer. By 2009, the company predicts advertisers will spend $26.6 billion online.
