‘Daily Show’ and ‘Colbert’ embedded clips expire

I didn’t notice this amid my joy that Comedy Central was enabling bloggers to embed video clips. The embedded clips from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report expire. That’s right: they only allow them to live online for about two weeks. I was about to embed a clip in this space from Colbert when I noticed fine print that says “This clip expires 12/14/2006.” Why let it expire? From the FAQ: “Due to licensing agreements we’re unable to keep this clip available on the site past the expiration date. We hope you enjoy it while we have it up.” In order to be a YouTube beater, they’re going to have to renegotiate those licensing agreements. Blog archives go far deeper than two weeks.
