May be of interest. Geared towards business customers for now. They
compare it to buying ringtones.

Excerpt:
Paramount will initially restrict use to business customers —
advertising agencies, mobile carriers, foreign broadcasters — that
want to license pieces of films for commercial use. The plan is to
ultimately open the site to consumers. People wanting to embed a
specific scene from “The Godfather” on their blog could go to
ParamountClips.com and buy it.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
