In recent weeks Turkey's government and the country's largest independent media group, Dogan Holding, have been in the midst of a fierce battle over media coverage of a high-profile corruption case taking place in a German court.

Dogan Holding operates in TV, radio broadcasting, print and online media. Dogan publishes seven newspapers including Hurriyet, Milliyet, Radikal, Posta, Fanatik, Referans and Turkish Daily News.

The Dogan family holds the presidency of the Turkish Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association, Tusaid. For the last six years Tusaid has provided much needed support, international and domestic legitimacy Turkish Prime Minister, Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP). However, over the past few months, their relationship has begun to sour.

After Viacom and France's TF1, Italy's MediaSet is reportedly also filing suit against YouTube for illegal video and audio uploads. Mediaset is seeking at least $800 million. Spain's Telecinco (owned by MediaSet) has previously sued the video site.

YouTube sent a press release to Reuters, which states: "We respect copyright".

According to Bloomberg, at least 4643 MediaSet videos (which is equal to 325 hours) have been illegally used on YouTube. MediaSet said that they have lost "the equivalent of 315.672 broadcasting days."

Moreover, Italian Prosecutors said that Google will be charged for broadcasting a video of an autistic child being taunted by classmates. Google is the parent company of YouTube.

The Trinity Mirror, which publishes over 150 regional newspapers, announced that it has launched 20 channels on YouTube, each branded to one of the company's newspaper holdings.

"We've got 20 live at the moment, but we are launching new sites all the time. Every new site that we launch, we set up the functionality [to automatically upload videos] and encourage them to use it," explained Jessica Healy, online marketing manager for Trinity Mirror Regionals.

"It's very much in its infancy but the aim is that every video we put up on our sites will be put into YouTube," she continued.

Since May, Trinity has launched channels first for the Liverpool Daily Post, followed by the Liverpool Echo, Huddersfield Examiner and Teesside Gazette.

Trinity's expanded online offerings may be in response to the BBC's recent £800,000 proposal to expand local video coverage, which many regional news sites have vehemently criticized, feeling the plan encroaches on their niche.

A new global study of social media use shows that the consumers in the U.S. and Western Europe are more likely to be "passive social-media participants," sharing videos and reading blogs, while those in emerging markets "often create content through blogging, social networks and video and photo sharing sites."

The Interpublic Group media agency had found in its first survey, which was conducted in 2006, a little over half of respondents said they read blogs. Their latest survey found that over 70% did.

Universal McCann conducted surveys to 17,000 Internet users to "track the global rise of consumer-generated content and online communities" over a period of time:
- Their first survey found that 30% watched video online, while this year over 80% had. Video watching platforms such as YouTube has caused watching video clips to become mainstream.
- In 2006, less than 30% said they set up a social network profile, while this year over 60% had. The survey shows big increases in listening to podcasts, subscribing to RSS feeds, commenting on news items, and most other online sharing activities.

Though social media is a global phenomenon, UM found that the way people use social media is more of a cultural difference.
- A little over 60% of Internet users in the U.S. said they read blogs, whereas 26% had created one. Over 70% of Internet users blog in South Korea and China, and about 90% of South Koreans read blogs and 88% read blogs in China.

For the second time since 1982, the Wall Street Journal parody, Off the Wall Street Journal, is published by New York Press. The first parody and its follow-up issue sold more than 650,000 copies. Now it has been renamed to My Wall Street Journal to honor "Rupert Murdoch's ever-expanding media empire which now includes everything from MySpace to the Wall Street Journal."

Founding editor-in-chief Tony Hendra, former editor of National Lampoon and Spy Magazine, returns with fellow '82 veteran David Blum, Todd Hanson from The Onion, and Jeff Kreisler from Comedy Central's Indecision 2008. Other contributors include writers for The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, and the Harvard Lampoon.

The tabloid is 24 pages and has the tagline "We Distort, You Decide" with sections such as a gossip section, "Obitcharies," and "Police blotter - A day in the life of the white-collar crime cops."

My Wall Street Journal is now available for a cover price of $3.95 on their website, Amazon.com, and in newsstands and bookstores in major cities.

Hulu.com, a website created by NBC Universal and Fox that legally hosts TV shows and feature films, launches to the public tomorrow. It is predicted to rival other video sharing websites, especially Google's YouTube. The difference with Hulu, reportedly, is its user-friendliness and professional quality material.

Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures, MGM, and other big name media companies have already signed on to add content onto the libraries. According to the New York Times, the only major non-participants are ABC and CBS. Additionally, sports fans will be able to find highlights from N.B.A. and N.H.L. games as well as full length N.C.A.A. men's basketball games from the past 25 years.

Viewers will be given a choice, depending on the show, with which commercials they want to see. Some viewers will even have the opportunity to watch a 2 minute film before the show which eliminates all commercials for the rest of the show.

Kristine Lowe, a freelance journalist, looked at how Norway's leading websites, Schibsted-owned VG, Norway's most read news site and NRK, Norway's public broadcaster, have successfully attracted online audiences. VG has developed Nettby, a social network that's only rivaled by Facebook in Norway, to gain even more readers

VG, with 2.7 million unique users "has the world's ugliest website," according to Torry Pedersen, editor-in-chief of VG online (take a look at this piece about Scandinavian website design). But, as Pedersen explains, while most news sites have an organized layout with clearly defined sections, VG gives its readers the opportunity to read "both a well argued piece on file-sharing and a story on Britney Spears' latest escapade." Nettby, already with 657,000 members, is in the process of expanding to Sweden and Spain.

In the last year, NRK has almost doubled its online traffic with a 42 per cent increase in unique users, mostly because they present themselves on already popular sites such as Facebook and YouTube.

Live video streaming if the future of newspapers videos online, according to Charles de Vroede, deputy chief editor of Dutch newspaper de Telegraaf.

"I believe the future is in live streaming - for me live streaming is the missing link between newsgathering and newswriting."

De Vroede's comments come just after YouTube announced it would be implementing live video streaming within the end of the year.

According to him, other video formats lack immediacy. De Telegraaf staff is already using cameras with live streaming capability, in order to cover entertainment news stories.

"News videos online quickly become very old. For a newspaper in print that's not a problem, because everything is a day old. Being on the web as a newspaper means instantaneous news and this will happen for video," said de Vroede.

Baz Broekhuizen, editor of Volkskrant TV (competitor to de Telegraaf), disagreed with de Vroede. At this point, live video news is too expensive for newspaper sites to produce, and they produce little or no long-tail effect.

According to Broekhuizen, newspaper videos shouldn't aim to compete with television broadcasters. It should instead focus on video formats that have a longer-term appeal than breaking news items.

According to co-founder Steve Chen, YouTube will be adding live video content before the end of this year.

"Live video is just something that we've always wanted to do, we've never had the resources to do it correctly, but now with Google, we hope to actually do it this year," he said in an interview with Pop17 blogger Sarah Meyers.

As online video continues to boom and high-speed broadband connections spread, live online video will be one of the next steps. Up to newspapers to be at the forefront.
