Submission + - YouTube Username Dispute

An anonymous reader writes: Hi there, I am user NativeInstruments in the YouTube community. I have received a request from the head of public relations of Native Instruments gmbh to handover the account because they would like to open their own channel. I asked what I could expect for my trouble. He has offered me $500 and threatened legal action if I do not respond by this sunday because they want to open the channel ASAP. So my questions to the slashdot community are mostly; is this what YouTube and communities are about? Are there any potential legal actions that can be taken against me? Are there examples of YouTube or Google accomodating corporate interest over individuals? Should I just give them the account? Any advice is appreciated since I value slashdot contributors' insight highly. Thank you!
