It seems like Facebook isn’t the only one looking to expand lately.
Yahoo is in talks to buy online-video service News Distribution Network (NDN), according to a report in The Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous sources. According to those sources, Yahoo could pay up to $300 million in the deal.
NDN, a video syndication service, is the fourth-largest video site, with 573 million video views. (Yahoo is fifth, with 384 million.) It doesn’t make any of its own videos — it has a collection of 100,000 videos, and makes those clips available to sites such as the Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News and Bloomberg.
