Viacom Deal Will Allow Its TV Clips on Internet - New York Times

Maybe they should have called it "Joust," as in a wedge between networks and Google/YouTube 

Viacom, the parent of networks like MTV and Comedy Central, which produce the types of programs that are ideal for watching on the Web, said yesterday that it had reached a deal with the Silicon Valley start-up Joost to distribute video online.

The agreement came a little more than two weeks after Viacom demanded that YouTube remove more than 100,000 clips of its programming.
