Google’s YouTube is on the way to making amends with Hollywood, CNET News reports, and could soon be home to legally-obtained clips from popular movies and TV shows. The report said that insiders are claiming Google has “adopted a more accommodating approach” toward movie and TV studios. For example, Lionsgate struck a deal with YouTube that allows cooperation with a major (unnamed) film studio.

Other big media companies are in talks with Google about similar deals, said sources from three different studios in the report. “We’ve been working with them on filtering and they’re doing a pretty good job,” said an executive at one of them. “We’re pretty impressed with the results and their ability to identify our clips and allow us to automate the process.”
