This one is not strictly legal, but WPBT Channel 2 has launched what appears to be a more high-minded, local version of Youtube, called uVu:
So lawyers, get out your little video doo-dads and get to work!
Imagine the ability to watch a program, performance or lecture and instantly share your view with the rest of the South Florida community. uVu (pronounced “you-view”) brings the community together to share voices, views and ideas with each other in a safe, easy-to-use online environment.
uVu is a video sharing website and companion digital broadcast channel powered by WPBT Channel 2, South Florida ’s PBS station. The website consists of video content created and submitted to the site by individuals, community groups and cultural/educational institutions, which allows the community to experience, at any time, the important happenings of South Florida .
Anyone can log on to the site, choose a video to watch, share their thoughts with others on a message board/blog and even send the video to a friend, building on the dialogue amongst users. And uVu responds to local events with the help of an army of citizen “correspondents,” shooting and supplying “their own Vu” to the site.
My first request is anything by Steve Zack -- I could watch him for hours, mouth agape. He could read the phone book for an hour, and I would silently listen (come to think of it, I have.)
