RSC Backs Off On Attack Against Pelosi’s Blog, Because, Well, They Were Wrong


Judging by the onslaught of comments on my previous post about Pelosi’s blog and by this Fox News story, it looks like the RSC is backpedaling on their accusations that “The Gavel” infringes upon C-SPAN copyright laws. (YouTube videos of the network’s chamber coverage were posted on the site.)

“Bruce Collins, the Corporate Vice President and General Counsel of C-SPAN, called post release and said that the information provided by the C-SPAN employee to the RSC was incorrect.”

Indeed, like many had noted, the C-SPAN video posted on Pelosi’s blog is public domain.
