    Gannett Abuses DMCA to Take Down Political Speech, KY Grimes avoiding Obama vote

    This is just shameful. As a news organization, Gannett should surely know that posting was a non-infringing fair use. It was used for a transformative political purpose, the original work was highly factual, and the poster took the amount needed to accomplish that purpose (part of the point was to show the candidate extended efforts to avoid answering—a shorter clip might not have managed that). If the rest of the interview was utterly uninteresting, Gannett might be thinking that the clip was the “heart of the work,” but that is not enough to tip the balance away from fair use.
