Viacom Goes With Joost: Copyright Protection As Selling Point To Suppliers


Reel.com: Viacom to put clips on Joost, Rebuffs Youtube:
“Just three weeks after pulling their content from YouTube, Viacom is expected to announce today a broad licensing agreement with Joost, a P2P video platform which was only recently released into beta. Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman says the decision was made because Joost promised to protect Viacom’s copyrights.
Viacom’s decision to go with Joost is a very public rebuff to YouTube’s irksome decision to only deploy filtering technology after a company signs a distribution agreement.”
