First Big Win for Joost
Viacom has announced its partnership with Joost, weeks after it created a ruckus over 100,000 clips of its content (primarily The Daily Show and The Colbert Report) being on YouTube. Negotiations with Youtube have broken down, and Viacom has thrown in their lot with Joost. Joost is a project run by the same guys who created Skype and Kazaa. It is in beta stage right now, but its mission statement, if realized, could revolutionize TV viewing in a way even TiVo couldn't.
