Google responded to Viacom‘s $1 billion lawsuit stating it was protected under the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act and arguing the suit threatens entertainment, education and free speech on the internet. “By seeking to make carriers and hosting providers liable for internet communications, Viacom’s complaint threatens the way hundreds of millions of people legitimately exchange information, news, entertainment, and political and artistic expression,” read a PDF filed with a U.S. District Court in New York. The two companies are scheduled to meet July 27 with the judge, who will likely then set a courtroom date.


Dow Jones & Co. was suddenly put into play with an unsolicited $5 billion buyout bid from News Corp. The news sent shares of Wall Street Journal publisher soaring yesterday, as the $60/share offer would be at a 65% premium over Monday’s closing price. The stock price leveled off when it was reported that Dow Jones’ controlling shareholder, the Bancroft family, plans to vote against the proposal. The announcement led to speculation that the Bancrofts could be posturing to coax a higher bid or allow other suitors to join the bidding. Dow Jones’ digital assets include, Wall Street Journal Asia,, Far Eastern Economic Review, Dow Jones Newswires, and All of could work nicely with News Corp.’s plans to launch a new financial news network.

Comcast and Yahoo agreed to a multiyear partnership allowing Yahoo to supply display and video ads to, a top-ten portal with some 15 million unique visitors a month. The deal is a big win for Yahoo, as Google had been in negotiations with Comcast on a wide-ranging deal that included access to its cable inventory. Yahoo’s services will be integrated into the upcoming as well as a major redesign planned for later this year. Comcast Spotlight will continue to bundle ads in cross-platform, locally-targeted packages.
Microsoft is considering offering around $1 billion for online ad firm 24/7 Real Media, according to The New York Post. Google’s acquisition of ad server DoubleClick has focused increased attention on the space. Ad Agency conglomerate WPP is also interested in the company.
Reuters launched a “virtual brand channel” for Hyundai Motor America, placing the automaker’s branding adjacent to relevant “smart thinking” stories that scroll within a box on the left side of Reuters programmers developed an algorithm based on keywords and attributes that appeal to the desired demo targeted for Hyundai’s Veracruz SUV, identified by Hyundai and ad agency Carat Fusion/Los Angels. The campaign is the first to take advantage of a new platform on the site developed by Unisys and Savvis.

Search engines such as Google are responsible for driving users to news sites more than ever before, according to Hitwise. Print news sites received 29.7% more traffic from Google during the last year while Broadcast Media sites received 35.9% boost. Market share of visits to the top 10 news and media sites declined 3.8% from March 2006 to March 2007, indicating fragmentation as users spend more time on blogs and other non-traditional news sites such as Digg.
Major household brands continue to be high-jacked online with domain names that use trademarked words and similar spellings, according to a new study by MarkMonitor. A survey of the top 25 companies on the Interbrand 100 list of most valuable brands found more than 286,000 instances of cybersquatting, an average of 11,400 for each company.
Circulations continued to fall at many of the large metro newspapers across the country, according to the latest figures from the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

Accel Partners announced Andrew Braccia will join its Palo Alto office as a general partner. A former Vice President of Consumer Web Search for Yahoo, Andrew will identify investment opportunities in consumer internet, search, digital media and online advertising for the venture capital firm.


No Good TV launched yesterday, one of the more star-powered broadband video sites to come along so far. (Look for promo clips by Eva Longoria and Johnny Depp if you don’t believe me.) The site is more than a little irreverent, rejoicing in the absence of FCC oversight with lots of cuss words and innuendo. One of its signature shows is Up Close, featuring what are basically long-form movie trailers where the stars of comedies such as Blades of Glory and Reno 911 get to tell you how they really feel about the #%!$ing movie. Original content with Will Ferrell is never a bad thing.
A new website will be featured here everyday for you to check out. Some are TV-centric, some creative, some just plain strange. Email me your suggestions at [email protected] and if I include the site you mention, your name, company and city will be credited. Only one mention per calendar week, to make it fair.

A couple of link corrections from yesterday: look for VH1 here and here. Sorry for the inconvenience! 
Later — Wayne
