Viacom - Joost #1 Contender for You Tube's Online Video Title
Tuesday, February 20, 2007
Viacom Inc., owner of MTV Networks and Paramount Pictures, said Tuesday that it planned to deliver free films and television shows through Joost, a rival to YouTube run by pioneers and early creators of Internet calling and music sharing services.

You may have heard that recently Viacom demanded that YouTube, the video-sharing site which is owned by Google, remove 100,000 clips from its TV networks that were posted without permission.

Initially Joost will offer shows from MTV, VH1, and movies from Paramount. The Joost technology is similar to what was used with Skype calling technology and the Kazaa music sharing service. Joost will provide Internet users with lists of videos for viewing at their convenience. Unlike You Tube, content creators and viewers of Joost must download free software, which limits sharing.

You Tube has been criticized for the amount of "infringed material" that has been accessed through the video sharing site.

Joost was founded by Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, and is still in testing. The Joost website is slated to be released in the next month or so.
