EMAILS:

We never said that we were the first vlog. We just think that it is an
interesting synergy for a television network to utilize such an
interactive feature. We are still in the development stages at many
levels, thus I can not give you any firm response on your other queries.

What is your position on rights of material produced for you? Do you
respect creator's rights, allowing them to maintain ownership of their
work? What is your approach to licensing such work for broadcast?
