Fox News: Court Ruled That Only Part of TVEyes' Service Represents Fair Use

By    |   Wednesday, 10 September 2014 11:23 AM

Fox News Network says another hearing has been scheduled for next month in its bid to stop a media-monitoring service from recording snippets of its broadcasts and offering them to clients, some of which use them to criticize the network.

Fox, which is owned by Twenty-First Century Fox Inc., sued TVEyes Inc. for copyright infringement in 2013, calling it a "parasitic" service that was leeching profits from its considerable investments in producing content for its cable channels.

U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein in Manhattan ruled Tuesday that Fairfield, Connecticut-based TVEyes' copying and indexing of the clips fairly used the cable news channel's content in line with copyright law.

"The Court only ruled that a specific portion of TVEyes' service — its keyword-search function — was fair use," a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to Moneynews.

Hellerstein is still deciding the copyright legality of some aspects of TVEyes’ service. Some features allow clips to be archived or shared via social media.

"The Court expressly said that it required more information to decide whether TVEyes' other features — including allowing video clips to be archived, downloaded, emailed, and shared via social media — were fair use," the Fox News spokesperson said. "The Court has called for another hearing on Oct. 3, 2014."
