Redlasso Suspends TV Clipping Service For Bloggers

  • July 28, 2008
Faced with a lawsuit by NBC and Fox, Redlasso said Friday it's suspending a video clipping service that allowed bloggers to search for TV clips and embed them.

"We are very disappointed in the actions of select networks," Ken Hayward, CEO of Redlasso, said in a statement. "We believe we have always acted within the law and have been respectful of the networks' rights. Unfortunately, they have forced our hand and are denying the blogging community access to the Redlasso platform that beneficially tracks the usage of newsworthy clips across the Web."

Redlasso will continue to operate its Radio To Web program, which has licensing deals with radio companies like Greater Media and XM Satellite Radio.--Wendy Davis
