Gone are the days when Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO) could produce Google-sized (NASDAQ:GOOG) or Baidu-sized (NASDAQ:BIDU) returns for shareholders.

So is it time for Yahoo! to break itself up? Would a Yahoo! spinoff find success -- like Wendy's (NYSE:WEN) spinoff Tim Hortons (NYSE:THI) -- or would it only find more trouble? In this installment of "Fool Video," I ask Motley Fool analyst Tim Hanson.
