Joost partners with Creative Arts Agency

Web video start-up will optimally get more distribution deals through partnership with talent agency.

Joost has announced another partnership--but this one's a little different than the seemingly endless announcements of niche TV deals that the much-hyped Web video start-up has been rolling out over the past few months. This time, Joost will be partnering with the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), a talent and literary agency with offices in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and several international locations. Through this deal, the CAA--which represents industries from TV to theater to video games to sports--will help Joost secure more content for distribution.

In other words, it's a partnership that will optimally lead to more partnerships.
