NBC thinks it has finally figured out how to prevent unauthorized YouTubery

The real Office

Let’s all congratulate NBC for seemingly having figured out how to prevent its great content, like clips of Saturday Night Live, from appearing on the likes of YouTube and Dailymotion. Well done, chaps!

NBC told CNET that it’s gotten to the point that unauthorized video clips (like from the Olympics or The Office) are removed so quickly that there’s hardly a soul who sees them. NBC also says its own Web site and Hulu.com are now getting more traffic than ever.

As a closing note, I will be grabbing this week’s episode of The Office from BitTorrent. Not to be a jerk or anything, but because I can’t visit Hulu from Barcelona. You’ve made me a criminal, NBC!
