Viacom ticked off at YouTube, Google
Back and forth, back and forth. It seems like every week media companies are changing their minds when it comes to online video. Now Viacom is demanding that YouTube remove 100,000 clips of their TV shows. The networks involved are CBS, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, CMT, and other networks.
This comes several months after Viacom asked YouTube (and Google) to take down copyrighted videos and to put some sort of filter in place. They say the company hasn't complied and now they want the content taken down.
Viacom says there are plenty of places to watch the content legally, including network sites such as comedycentral.com, nick.com, cbs.com, ifilm.com. Of course, you probably won't get as much selection as you do on YouTube.
