Viacom Demands YouTube Yank 100,000 Clips

Viacom Inc., parent company of popular television networks such as Comedy Central and MTV, demanded that Google remove all of its video clips from YouTube, including 100,000 video clips from Viacom-owned properties, after the two media giants failed to reach an agreement. Viacom said its pirated programs on YouTube generate about 1.2 billion video streams, based on a study from an outside consultant. As of midday on Friday, however, a search for "MTV" on YouTube still yielded over 50,000 results – Google may have started removing clips but that doesn't stop them from being reposted.
