YouTube and EMI sign agreement

Posted in EMI,News,YouTube by Chris Weber on June 1st, 2007

YouTube and EMI music sign agreement to show content on YouTubeEMI Music has finally fallen in line and taken a big swig of the YouTube/Google kool-aid along with peers Sony BMG, Universal, and Warner by making an agreement with the mammoth video sharing site to show “approved” EMI content. EMI may have ben the last of the “big 4″ to make a deal with YouTube since they were recently consumed with being the first to launch a DRM-free music catalog with Apple.

With the agreement, EMI is able to get compensated for it’s videos that are shown on YouTube through any advertising revenue that is generated on pages with those clips. They are also given some administrative control over the YouTube website with some tools to remove content that is not approved (such as the Beatles) or where they feel the content is being used inappropriately.

This agreement …

YouTube on Apple TV

Posted in Apple TV,News,YouTube by Chetz on June 1st, 2007

YouTube videos showing on Apple TVThe immense popularity of YouTube and the rapidly eroding audience of network television could only mean that one day someone out there would think of bringing it into our homes and not through our computers. I am of course referring to Apple’s announcement to bring YouTube direct through its Apple TV streaming service, the next greatest thing from the mind of Steve Jobs (barring the release of the iPhone of course.)

Ironically enough Apple will debut the YouTube service in mid-June, right about when the iPhone hits the masses. Apple will be launching with “thousands” of YouTube’s videos and adding thousands more each week, promising that the entirety of the Tube’s content will be available for Apple TV customers sometime this fall. How often Apple would update its YouTube content after that wasn’t mentioned but if you really need that …

YouTube and Google Face More Copyright Challenges

Posted in Google,YouTube by Darrin Olson on May 5th, 2007

Copyright troubles for YouTube from the English Premier League and Bourne CoFriday YouTube and their new parent company Google were hit with another copyright infringement lawsuit, this time from England’s top soccer league and a US music publisher.

The Premier League and Bourne Co. issued the lawsuit citing that not only does YouTube have their copyrighted content on the video sharing website, but that they are encouraging people to view the footage on the website and subsequently are “knowingly” misappropriating the two companies intellectual property. By this, according to the lawsuit, the operators of YouTube are exploiting the valuable intellectual video property for their own gain without any payment to the owners of these videos.

This lawsuit comes less than two months after Viacom sued YouTube and Google for copyright infringement of their television programming, and 6 months after the search engine giant Google purchased the YouTube

Google remains confident in YouTube copyright lawsuit

Posted in Google,News,Viacom,YouTube by Chris Weber on March 15th, 2007

Lawsuit over Viacom videos on YouTube continues between Google and ViacomTwo days ago Viacom dropped a $1 billion lawsuit on Google and YouTube stating that the video sharing giant had violated copyright laws by hosting videos created by some of Viacom’s programming brand.

In response, attorneys for Google feel that they have strong legal protections under current copyright law, according to Reuters. The legal team feels they have a very strong defense due to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

“Here there is a law which is specifically designed to give Web hosts such as us, or… bloggers or people that provide photo-album hosting online … the ‘safe harbor’ we need in order to be able to do hosting online,” said Alexander Macgillivray, general counsel for Google. “We will never launch a product or acquire a company unless we are completely satisfied with its legal basis …

BBC will now make program excerpts available on YouTubeThe British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has announced a deal with YouTube to publish excerpts from the BBC news and entertainment programs on the popular video downloading site. The BBC clips starting appearing on YouTube Friday, which marks the first time an international broadcaster has made such a deal with the Google-owned YouTube site.

The BBC videos will be available through their own channels on the YouTube portal. One of the channels called BBC Worldwide will show popular BBC programs such as “Top Gear” and “Spooks” along with nature documentaries. A BBC

YouTube Relegates Google Video to Search Tool

Posted in Google,YouTube by Paul Patterson on January 28th, 2007

YouTube Relegates Google Video to Search ToolNovember saw Google’s acquisition of YouTube and many of us wondered what would happen to the existing Google Video product. Certainly Google wouldn’t need two competing Video services. A recent post in the Google blog by Salar Kamangar, Vice President of Product Management, has shed some light on their plans for Google Video and the future of video in general.

Google’s extraordinary strength has always been creating products that make information more available and easily searchable. Google products aren’t necessarily known for their friendly, cheerful interfaces which is likely a big reason they bought YouTube – in addition to the vast legions of users. YouTube’s strengths are its community of users who create, watch and share videos. Google’s plan is to make the most of the strengths of these two products.

Google Video will be relegated to a video search …

YouTube Hits Google Jackpot

Google Buys YouTube

What does 1.65 billion dollars buy you these days? Well, if you are Google it buys you a popular free video sharing web site and a fair share of controversy.

YouTube, which lets users upload, view, and share video clips was founded in February 2005 by three early employees of PayPal. YouTube has made headlines recently due to the scuttlebutt concerning copyright violations. Most videos posted on YouTube are original, but the site also features a certain amount of copyrighted material. This problem has caused some pundits to predict the startup eventually would be sued into oblivion.

This recent purchase by Google is the latest in a line of purchases by the search engine behemoth. Last year Google spent $130.5 million buying a total of 15 small companies.

Video sharing websites appear to be all the rage these days as marquee names like …
