Consumer-Generated Content Hits TV, MTV Continues IE-Only Stupidity

no_firefox_mtv.jpg

The Wall Street Journal reports MTV's VH1 will, on January 13, launch "Web Junk 20," a show featuring video clips found on MTV-owned iFilm. MTV hopes the show will drive viewers to the company's online channel, Vspot. Unfortunately, as with other MTV online efforts, Vspot does not work with Firefox and visitors using that browser are met with "We're Sorry. PC Users with Netscape, Mozilla or Firefox: you need to run Internet Explorer to use VSpot." Idiots. Those most likely to be interested in Vspot content have a clue and those who have a clue use Forefox, not IE. Please get a clue, MTV and screw your deal with Microsoft.

Comments

I think that this program is bound to run into trouble over copyright concerns. While many on the internet have not been sued when they ad commercial music or video to their pet projects, I think that Viacom is bound to run into trouble if they try to sample videos in their program without compensating the artists for their work. A large part of why the public has been able to use Metallica songs in their family videos is because nobody sees it and if they do there aren't the big pockets to go after. I have a funny feeling that we'll either see a version of the show where they are too slow getting the content out because of negotiating these contracts or we'll see that MTV will inevitably get sued. It should be interesting to see how they address this issue for the program.

I just noticed tonight that myspace is doing that same bullshit. I hate IE, and now I'm transferring it to myspace. And I used to like it so much.

Someone else below asked this already.
I am getting nailed with Spam in my guestbook for our catalog website. Is there anyway to stop

this? If not, there really isn't any point in leaving it up and active. Any help will be greatly

appreciated.

Thanks

I guess the future is, that most content in tv will also be produced by users, they than will built up television 2.0
