[News] CNN Abuses Copyrights to Achieve Censorship

Hash: SHA1

CNN makes copyright claim on video critical of reporter's 'Tea Party'
interviews; a clear case of fair use?

,----[ Quote ]
| CNN has sent YouTube a DMCA takedown notice on a video critical of a CNN 
| reporter for her coverage of a "Tea Party" protest -- a video that appears to 
| be a clear case of a non-infringing fair use.   



CNN Follows Fox News In Using DMCA To Take Down Fair Use Videos

,----[ Quote ]
| The "liberal" CNN has filed a DMCA notice to have video taken down that was
| being used by a conservative blog for commentary purposes -- again, almost
| certainly fair use. Also, it sounds like some of the video footage that CNN
| demanded be taken down wasn't even filmed by CNN, suggesting they don't hold
| the copyright on it.


Shepard Fairey Challenges AP Copyright by Jonathan Hunter

,----[ Quote ]
| By all accounts, President Barack Obama’s road to the Oval Office was one
| replete with firsts. For example, the 2008 presidential campaign marked the
| first time many had heard of Los Angeles street artist Shepard Fairey.
| Fairey’s stylized poster of Obama—which bears the Obama campaign
| watchword, "hope"— became a symbol of Obama’s candidacy among many
| supporters. Now that image has landed Fairey in a legal battle with the
| Associated Press, which claims that Fairey’s poster infringes on its
| copyright to a 2006 photograph. On Feb. 9th of this year, Fairey fired back,
| seeking a declaratory judgment that his poster of Obama does not infringe on
| any AP copyrights.


Using The DMCA To Stop Patients From Rating Their Doctors

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, it does bring up a few interesting points of discussion. First, is
| that the main purpose of using copyright here is so that the doctors can make
| use of the DMCA's notice-and-takedown safe harbor provisions, rather than be
| stymied by the similar (but not quite the same) CDA section 230 safe harbors
| for things like defamation.
