From the International Herald Tribune:
Viacom, the media company controlled by billionaire Sumner Redstone, demanded Google Inc.’s YouTube remove more than 100,000 unauthorized videos from the site.
YouTube isn’t willing to reach a “fair market agreement” that would make Viacom’s content available to its users, New York-based Viacom said in an e-mailed statement today.
Of course this could be a bargaining tactic, but it’s hard to see how You Tube can survive if it has to be pay for clips from movies and TV.
