Submission + - Microsoft To Acquire Ustream.tv For $50 Million? (valleywag.com)

Ustream is currently raising a very large initial round of VC financing, and Microsoft is attempting to grab them prefunding for a cheap price. Our tipster also mentions that Microsoft would use Ustream as a way to promote its Adobe Flash competitor, Silverlight.
