CowsAnonymous (697884) writes ""NHL Interactive Cyber Enterprises (ICE), the digital arm of the National Hockey League (NHL), today announced a multi-year deal to provide NHL video content to Google Video. The NHL will provide in-season full-length games on delay to Google Video".
To celebrate its 89th season and this increased access to video content, the NHL will be offering its content for free — without ads — for the first two weeks of November."
CowsAnonymous (697884) writes "The next company to sue YouTube is... UTUBE!. "Universal Tube and Rollform Equipment in Perrysburg has filed a lawsuit against the wildly popular online video portal. [The company] is fed up with all the traffic on its Web site from people who really want YouTube...Universal Tube executives say its site is now jammed with more than 100 times the traffic it used to get. The company's owner says they've even heard from Austrialian authorities accusing Universal Tube of having child pornography on its Web site." The article explains that the company wishes YouTube to change its name or pay for utube.com to have its name changed."
CowsAnonymous (697884) writes "Viacom has taken a step back on it's earlier efforts to limit clips from shows like "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" from appearing on YouTube (as previously reported).
"We want our audiences to be able to access our programming on every platform and we're interested in having it live on all forms of distribution in ways that protect our talented artists, our loyal customers and our passionate audiences," Viacom said in a statement sent to Red Herring by spokesperson Jeremy Zweig.
A spokesman said that "Shorter clips from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report will remain on the video-sharing site"."
CowsAnonymous (697884) writes "Miami courts have turned down a request by Jack Thompson to restrict the sale of the game "Bully", previously covered previously on Slashdot. From TFA: "Although Judge Ronald Friedman didn't see all of the game footage, a Take Two employee used various cheat codes to move through the game quickly and give the court a sampling of the game's content. After seeing around two hours of content, Judge Friedman reportedly commented that the footage wasn't much different from what is seen on prime-time TV. While he didn't think he wanted his kids playing it, he found nothing in Bully to keep it from being sold to its intended audience."
Said Jack Thompson after the ruling, "I may be full of crap about this game, and I may be wrong, and that's fine. But there's such a thing as due process...and I was denied due process in court today." The Miami Herald reports that Jack Thompson doesn't plan to revisit the issue."
