Report: KSFO Shuts Critical Blogger Up -- For A While, Anyway
January 8, 2007 at 5:55 AM (PT)
DISNEY/ABC has apparently, for a brief time at least, shut down a website with criticism of its Talk KSFO-A/SAN FRANCISCO.
MEDIAPOST's ONLINE MEDIA DAILY reports that the company issued a cease-and-desist letter on DECEMBER 22 to the ISP of a blog called "SPOCKO'S BRAIN," which had posted clips from KSFO programming and had contacted advertisers to get them to stop advertising on the station.
The ISP, 1&1 INTERNET, removed the blog but says it would be "more than likely" to restore it if "SPOCKO" used transcripts rather than copyrighted clips. "SPOCKO" claims fair use.
But the site appears to be back up and running as of today (1/8), with clips from KSFO shows back on the page.
