10 Yetis Gets Ready to Pinch MTV Clips!

After all that hoohaa* about Viacom asking YouTube to remove clips from of its network of shows being used on the site it has announced that it is about to enable viewers of its MTV and Comedy Central channels to grab clips for blogs and web pages!

I saw the story on BBC Tech site and came as part of the announcement that Viacom would be trimming its organisation by 250 jobs so it can "focus" on the online development.

Great! Westwood will be pimping his ride on blog clips now!

It looks like VH1, MTV and Comedy Central will be the affected areas.

*a recognised word that means, "hullabaloo".
