Repeat after me, “Karmic Justice.” The McCain campaign has been getting their advertisements pulled down left and right since many contain clips from other sources (CBS for example). These are certainly fair use examples, but the way that the DMCA works, it makes no difference in the initial take down request.
I don’t know McCain’s history with the DMCA. Not many voted against it, so I assume he voted for it. I’m not even happy that it’s happening to him. I’m just happy that it’s happening to someone in government. Maybe now that they’ve been screwed by it as many others have, it will get fixed.
