News video-sharing and clipping service Redlasso has relaunched, giving bloggers access to video and audio clips from over 100 TV stations. The company secured licensing deals with *Meredith* Broadcasting, Journal Broadcasting Local Television, Gray Television and Barrington Broadcasting; RedLasso brokered its first new licensing deal with Fox, for content from the company’s owned-and-operated local TV stations, in March.

RedLasso will update its video archives in real-time, giving bloggers and journalists fresh local and national news clips to share with their audiences. The service, which lets users customize the video clips, gained popularity after its initial launch in 2007, but shut down last year, after *NBCU*, *CBS* and Fox sued the company for providing “unauthorized” access to their news clips. RedLasso has since settled the lawsuits — though it is interesting that there’s no content from NBCU or *CBS* yet available — and says it’s close to “breaking even” in terms of revenues this year.
