Viacomm and You Tube

Viacomm is insisting that You Tube remove from their site any copyrighted material:

Viacom Inc. on Friday demanded that Google Inc.'s online video service YouTube remove more than 100,000 video clips after they failed to reach a distribution agreement.

Viacom said it sent a notice to YouTube on Friday morning asking the popular video-sharing site to remove clips from Viacom-owned properties including MTV Networks and BET.

When You Tube was just a goofy site with no business model and no advertising no one cared. Now that it's owned by Google and there's pots of money to be found the lawyers are coming our of the wood work.
