Miles Lost The Battle After All

Remember this controversy about the CATV6 video that Marshall Miles demanded be taken down from Mike Flint’s blog, Curious Citizen.

Well, unless Miles wants to take Flint to federal court, it looks like what Mike did (download a CATV6 video of a municipal meeting, pare it down to a few seconds, repost to his own YouTube account and embed on his blog) is an example of the concept of fair use.

How many times have you seen a news or sports show that uses brief clips from other organizations’ coverage?  It’s called fair use, dummy. Oh, and here is the clip in question re-embedded. Enjoy.

And congratulations, Mike!
