NBCU’s Zucker lashes out at YouTube

On his first day as CEO of NBC Universal, Jeff Zucker had some pointed words for the biggest video site on the web. “YouTube needs to prove that it will implement its filtering technology across its online platform. It’s proven it can do it when it wants to,” Zucker said, referring to the site’s controls to block porn and other objectionable content. He added: “They have the capability. The question is whether they have the will.” NBC and other media companies are frustrated with YouTube’s delay in launching its promised technology to filter out copyrighted content, which contributed to Viacom’s decision to halt negotiations and pull its content off the site.
