    YouTube has grown rapidly in the past year
    Google is trying to win permission from media companies to broadcast output legally on YouTube and avoid the threat of legal action, a report has said.
    The Financial Times said Google was offering groups upfront payments for the right to use film and TV clips, music and other work on the site.

    Google, which bought YouTube last month, is talking with groups including CBS, NBC, News Corp and Time Warner.

    Some of their material is already on the site - but without permission.

    Sony BMG, Warner Music and Universal Music have already signed agreements to supply some of their content in exchange for a share of advertising revenues.
