Newport TV Cease and Desist Letter

Newport TV Cease and Desist Letter

Ratings: (0)|Views: 5,784|Likes:
Published by Josh Stearns
When our Change the Channels campaign ruffled the feathers of Newport Television, a media company that "owns, operates, and programs or provides sales and other services" to 56 TV stations in 24 markets they decided they would try to shut us up with a threatening letter.

We pointed out Newport's "providing sales and other services" created a quasi-merger between WTEV-TV and WAWS-TV in Jacksonville, Fla. A video showing near identical content on the supposedly independent stations' websites was featured on YouTube and embedded on the Free Press website. Rather than argue the merits, Newport filed a copyright claim, and YouTube shut down the video.
