GSA, YouTube discuss posting government videos

General Services Administration officials are negotiating with Google’s YouTube about the rules governing posting government videos on YouTube, a GSA official said today.

The negotiations focus on YouTube’s terms of service, said Tobi Edler, a GSA spokeswoman.

A coalition of federal agencies led by GSA’s Office of Citizen Services has been negotiating with YouTube for six months, Edler said.

When an agreement is reached, it will be offered to all federal agencies, Edler said.

“The discussions have been fruitful but are still continuing, and the final agreement has not yet been reached,” Edler said.
