Candidates and copyright at Sibutramine Prices - FDA Checked Pharmacy



Candidates and copyright

James Kotecki points out that most of the presidential campaigns are violating copyright when they put clips of their interviews from cable and network shows up on YouTube -- and he hopes that this forces them to reexamine copyright laws. He also likes that the networks are setting a precedent in not going after the campaigns' useage. I'm not so sure it's a violation but a defensible use of fair comment but I agree with James in any case.

    Thanks for posting this - is there a definitive answer out there on whether it’s fair use?

    I based my assumption that it’s not on two factors:

    1) The networks having to explicitly make their debate footage available to bloggers - implying that it otherwise wouldn’t be.

    2) A network news producer once told me “You didn’t hear this from me, but you should upload your appearances on our channel to YouTube.” She was implying, I thought, that even if I were just taking a clip of my own interview, I would be doing something that, in the very least, CNN didn’t like.

    So, I have my hunches but no clear answer.
