I wouldn't touch Ustream. They use bots to detect copyrighted material
and automatically shut off streams that are in "violation." The trouble
is, the bots have no concept of having permission to stream copyrighted
material. The Hugo Awards at this year's World Science Fiction
Convention were cut off in mid-broadcast because of this. UStream
apologized afterwards, but the damage was done.
