Orange prices rise due to chilly weather 

Climbing orange prices caused by a cold winter in California and storms in Florida are driving the cost of juice up; the average price reached $5.76 a gallon as of Feb. 17, 24 percent higher than a year ago, and is expected to rise more. Smoothie chain Jamba Juice has started charging an extra 25 cents for drinks with orange juice. Americans buy about $3 billion worth of orange juice annually.

The Yahoo! Inc. CEO said he wasn’t surprised that Viacom Inc. sued San Bruno video-sharing site YouTube for $1 billion this month for running unlicensed material and noted that his company has steered clear of some content. During last year’s soccer World Cup, for example, a popular clip of France’s Zinedine Zidane head-butting an Italian defender didn’t appear on Yahoo, Semel said.
