I don't care what NBCU thinks about their business models and
competencies, they still do not know the nature of the Internet. If
nobody's charging money to watch the SNL skit, NBC should be thankful
for getting the free viral buzz out there. But nooooo, NBCU goes back
into Industrial-Age thinking mode and sends out the lawyers. What
maroons. :( -rf
NBC Universal Zaps YouTube Uploads of SNL Skit On Sarah Palin
By Sarah Lai Stirland EmailSeptember 15, 2008 | 4:27:50 PMCategories:
Google searches for the terms "SNL Palin," "Saturday Night Live," and
"Tina Fey as Palin" rocketed off the roof over the week-end, as people
around the United States e-mailed each other and blogged about Fey's
uncannily-close impersonation of the Republican vice-presidential
Fey, Saturday Night Live's former head writer and creator of the show
30 Rock, appeared with SNL's Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton to "battle
sexism" in the show's opening skit.
Soon after the episode aired, e-mails with links to the inevitable
YouTube uploads flew around listservs. But the take-down notices went
out just as quickly, notifying YouTube that the clips had infringed
upon NBC Universal's copyright. One of the uploads had already been
removed as of Sunday, but several more managed to stay up on YouTube
as of Monday. And other web sites such as LiveLeak also hosted clips.
NBC Universal has since posted the skit up on its own web site. Below
is an embed of the clip.
