C4 in dispute with producers over web rights

[Tags: ]. Article from The Guardian on interesting conflicts over the right to show programmes online:
"Eager to develop its own online operation and to shore up its ratings, Channel 4 is arguing for a 30-day hiatus between a show's first screening on TV and its reversion to the programme producer.
"Since a change in regulations last year, broadcasters' control of shows is now limited to their first screening and one repeat. After that, the rights revert to the maker, who can sell them to channels overseas or broker a DVD distribution deal."
