MediaPost has an interesting piece about online media, oldline media, and YouTube today:  a web startup,  ProgressIllinois.com, has been reporting about–timely topic–government corruption in Illinois.  As part of the site’s coverage, it included links to posted YouTube clips, including original video and work from Chicago stations, including FOX O&O WFLD.

Now FOX is fighting back, pulling the clips, and claiming copyright infringement.  Is FOX fairly doing battle with video pirates?  Or swimming upstream?  Share your thoughts…

Media Post has the full report here.
