News: The Barack Obama campaign posted a clip from this weekend’s Saturday Night Live featuring Barack Obama, in a skit making fun of Hillary Clinton and the other Democratic candidates. Newteevee reports that NBC had previously sent YouTube a notice to remove a different copy of the video. But the Obama campaign posted another one — although it’s not clear if with permission from NBC.
Analysis: I think the copyright issue is purely academic at this point. For PR reasons, NBC won’t be going after the Obama campaign for video of Barack Obama himself.
