YouTube may be pulling Comedy Central video

Lost Remote reports that an undisclosed third party has demanded that YouTube remove video of Comedy Central shows, such as the Daily Show and the Colbert Report.  Something doesn’t computer.  While it’s obvious that some videos have been removed, there is still (for example) Steve Colbert on YouTube. I think YouTube has been a great promo tool for Comedy Central, and certainly for Colbert, who has repaid the favor through many on-air references to YouTube.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out — legitimate demand for removal, or misunderstanding, or back-tracking by Viacom when they realize they’re really hurting themselves.
