Verizon YouTube to Exploit Video Producers

Verizon near content deal with YouTube: WSJ|Reuters.com:
"Verizon Communications Inc., the No. 2 U.S. telecommunications company, is in advanced talks with YouTube Inc. to bring the Web site's videos to cellphones and television sets, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday."
There's a good idea, make a ton of money off the premium V Cast service based on free content from users. Read the article and you'll see no mention of compensating YouTube video producers for their work. They'd better have a mechanism in place to restrict the use of Creative Commons Non-Commercial videos.
