A few months back, Sony bought Grouper.com for its video hosting/sharing technology. So, it should come as no surprise that Sony Pictures Entertainment has now agreed to offer up snippets of content from 100 Sony films and TV shows that others can include on their own blogs or social networking sites. Basically, this is Sony saying it's realized that promotional snippets from its content have promotional value and then offering it to its own video hosting site, and then publicly patting itself on the back for realizing the obvious. And people wonder why it's taking the entertainment industry so long to recognize the promotional value of content. They barely even recognize the promotional value of the snippets they traditionally use for promotions.
