»  Turns out the lawyer who filed a class-action suit against Cablevision-over the fee spat with Fox-is a former Fox employee. [L.A. Times]

»  Are political candidates getting hit with more copyright claims this year? Musicians, Fox News, and the NFL have all made recent claims against politicians using their content. [Eric Goldman]
