Intellectual Property Strategist
Only a small fraction of television news broadcasts are made available online. For a party to monitor and view all news coverage of an event, it would essentially have to watch and record all news broadcasts 24/7. That’s exactly what media-monitoring service TVEyes did. There was no dispute that TVEyes had copied Fox News’s content. Instead, the issue was whether TVEyes’s service constituted fair use.
