FOX News v. John McCain, Mitt Romney

News: This is a little bit late (happened last year), but I’ve been researching the copyright dispute FOX News had with John McCain and Mitt Romney.

What was the problem?  Well, FOX demanded that McCain and Romney each stop using, in their campaign videos, any footage from their Republican debate sponsored by FOX News.  Both candidates invoked fair use, but FOX said it wasn’t fair use.

Analysis:  I have not read if FOX has changed its view.  It should.  FOX’s argument is downright absurd, a misuse of its copyright.
