Viacom in the Juice, Joost

VoIP IP Telephony @ http://snapvoip.blogspot.com

I find from from multiple news sources that Joost has inked a deal with Viacom for video distribution.

Motley Fool says that Joost will protect Viacom's copyrights as well as give the media giant as much as two-thirds of the ad revenue. Even though YouTube has struck revenue-sharing deals with content providers in the past, the soft policing of infringing uploads has been frustrating to some entertainment companies.

May be Joost wil have enough money that they will buy unyielding Viacom some day! (That is my prediction, not motley fool's.)
Then the CNET news tells us that The deal is limited, at least at first: many of Viacom's most popular programs, such as Comedy Central's The Colbert Report and South Park, will not be available initially. Some of the featured offerings, however, will be MTV's My Super Sweet 16, Comedy Central's Freak Show, BET's American Gangster, as well as feature films from Paramount and its related brands.
OK, I am waiting to see those stuff on Joost.
I really like what I have seen during my testing of Joost. And looking forward to see more sooner.
Folks, Joost is getting better, as the time and software releases passes.
