EFF May Defend Blogger Caught In Copyright Infringement Suit
As copyright infringement claims go, this one is a little spurious.
ABC, Inc. is claiming that when blogger Spocko posted audio clips of arguably offensive rhetoric from ABC-owned radio station KSFO-AM San Francisco, he committed copyright infringement.
ABC sent a letter to Spocko's Web hosting company, which shut Spocko's site down.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is threatening legal action.
"Copyright law is not designed to silence speech that you dislike," said EFF Staff Attorney Matt Zimmerman. "ABC and KSFO know that their legal threats were absolutely groundless. Their time and efforts are better spent explaining why they think Spocko is wrong, and letting the public decide, instead of resorting to thuggish legal tactics."
Heres the link to the EFF's letter to ABC.
