A little while back, NBC got strict with YouTube and requested to have all their copyrighted content immediately removed. Though this move was much to the dismay of SNL fans everywhere, it was more than just a rights issue. NBC has plans to use the video hosting service as an official platform for their promotions, trailers, etc.
An example of this is the contest tied to the NBC hit show (I know, I couldn't type that with a straight face either) The Office. What you need to do is create a 20-second promo for the show and post it on YouTube (no other means of entry will be accepted). Apparently NBC blew their promo budget on America's Got Talent.Entries must be marked private and NBC will decide which ones to actually post to the public on YouTube, and a group of judges will decide who wins. Are you kidding me? You're using YouTube to power your contest and the winners aren't decided at all by how many people watch them? You may as well just ask for VHS tapes that no one ever gets to see.
Anyway, check out the details at the special Office page on YouTube. Get NBC's Th Office on DVD.
