Microsoft talking with Orange about Dailymotion partnership

Orange (ORAN +0.1%) has confirmed it's talking to Microsoft (MSFT -0.3%) about a partnership revolving around video site/would-be YouTube rival Dailymotion. The French carrier, which has been looking for international partners to grow Dailymotion's reach, says it will hold onto its majority stake in the site in the event of a deal.

Last year, the French government blocked Orange from selling Dailymotion to Yahoo. Though Microsoft's Bing contains a video site, it doesn't currently support uploads.
