Pandora TV, Korea's leading video sharing operator, reached an
agreement with SBS, one of the nation's major terrestrial broadcasters,
to allow the uploading of short video clips from SBS without prior
permission. Under this agreement, users can upload edited or original
SBS programs, no longer than three minutes in length, to Pandora website
under CC licence (BY-NC-ND). Most programs including soap operas,
entertainment and sports that have been aired this year are applicable
except news programs. The uploaded contents are also allowed to be
streamed on other community sites.
Both parties expect that while users would enjoy more and easier
access to free video clips, this agreement will also offer a win-win
solution for both video sharing operators such as Pandora TV and content
providers especially in dealing with copyright infringement issues.
