paidContent, vis WSJ, is reporting that that Google / CBS deal is dead for now and gives details on Google / Viacom failing to reach agreements on money and technology issues.
My big concern is NBC, who sent Google a six-page letter demanding YouTube keep their content off their site. It doesn't bother me that NBC doesn't want to be on YouTube but rather they seem to have a 'we'll build it ourselves and everyone will come to us' approach rather than exploiting popular platforms that could help them now.
Of everyone in this scenario you'd think NBC, who's Saturday Night Live was a direct beneficiary of the "Lazy Sunday" viral sensation, would be more willing to jump on the digital bandwagon. By the way, "Lazy Sunday" isn't even on YouTube anymore. Nice work NBC.
