The YouTube Party's Over

Well, at least in reference to clips from Comedy Central. From today's Studio Briefing (at IMDB):
In what could amount to a telling blow to the video website -- purchased by Google last month for $1.6 billion -- Comedy Central has forced it to remove thousands of clips from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert's The Colbert Report, and South Park, the New York Post reported today (Monday). Ordinarily, when such clips are removed from the website at the request of the copyright owner, they are quickly replaced. But according to the Post, in this instance, those who originally posted the Comedy Central clips said that they have received emails from the site warning them that if they uploaded the clips again, it would "result in the deletion of your [YouTube] account."
