Report: “TVEyes Will No Longer Carry Fox News in Negotiated End to Big Copyright Fight”

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Fox News has fully prevailed in a copyright lawsuit against TVEyes, a media monitoring service that allows its users to find and share clips of broadcast news. On Friday, Fox News informed a New York federal judge that it had reached a settlement with TVEyes, putting an end to the five-year-old case. As part of the deal, TVEyes has agreed to a permanent injunction and will no longer be permitted to carry copyrighted content from Fox News.

The resolution comes weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review a lower appellate court’s opinion that TVEyes’ service couldn’t be justified as a fair use.

The settlement avoids any need for a trial to determine monetary damages for copyright infringement. According to the consent judgment, both sides are bearing their own fees and costs. The dispute simply ends with an enforceable pledge by TVEyes that it will no longer distribute or perform Fox News content.
