Viacom demands that YouTube remove more than 100,000 unauthorized video clips₪ Media company Viacom Inc., which owns the cable networks MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon and the Paramount Pictures movie studio, asked Internet site YouTube to remove more than 100,000 unauthorized clips from its hugely popular video-sharing site. Viacom said in a statement Friday that after several months of talks with YouTube and its corporate parent, the online search leader Google Inc., "it has become clear that YouTube is unwilling to come to a fair market agreement that would make Viacom content available to YouTube users." Viacom said that YouTube and Google had failed to deliver on several "filtering tools" to control unauthorized video from appearing on the hugely popular site. The company was now asking YouTube to take the clips down, but stopped short of filing a lawsuit.
