C-SPAN issued a press release today, announcing:
…a liberalized copyright policy for current, future, and past coverage of any official events sponsored by Congress and any federal agency– about half of all programming offered on the C-SPAN television networks–which will allow non-commercial copying, sharing, and posting of C-SPAN video on the Internet, with attribution.
(The emphases are C-SPAN’s own.)
You will find a bit of background about this development on National Journal’s Beltway Blogroll posting.
The C-SPAN announcement is causing a stir in the blogosphere, where bloggers are wondering about the definition of “non-commercial” and whether it includes them.
Any FGI insight?
