Microsoft reportedly wants a piece of Dailymotion’s video pie

Almost one year after the French government reportedly blocked Yahoo from procuring a majority stake in video-sharing site Dailymotion, Microsoft is now reported to be sniffing around the company.


As the Wall Street Journal reports, Orange – Dailymotion’s largest stakeholder – is in talks with Microsoft with a view towards entering a partnership. Orange Chief Executive Stephane Richard apparently made the remarks on Tuesday, during an interview with French TV channel BFM TV.


The Paris-based company claims to be the second biggest video-sharing service on the Web behind – you guessed it – YouTube. Full details of what the deal will entail – if it comes to fruition – isn’t yet clear.
