NBC Serious About Curbing Video Sharing

The Hollywood Reporter writes that NBC Universal is leaning on popular Web sites engaged in video sharing to remove hundreds of copyrighted video clips derived from its TV networks.

YouTube.com and other sites that host video and encourage sharing among users, have been asked to remove NBC-owner content like the popular “Lazy Sunday” skit from NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” that became a hit on the Internet.

A spokeswoman for YouTube.com confirmed that the site is complying with NBC Uni’s request.
