Last night we found out that David pakman, a respected individual in the independent news media was silenced by CNN and then verbally attacked publicly on Twitter by mischaracterizing the use of CNN'S debate footage as piracy, in David pakman case his use of the CNN'S video coverage of the 2020 debates falls very clearly under the fair use guidelines in that the footage being displayed on screen was being consistently analyzed,critiqued, and supplemented by David's live commentary. No where did David provide a means of illegally downloading and storing said footage. This use of the live footage is a form of free speech, CNN'S argument of David providing a paid service is flawed in that they were simply streaming the debate as well themselves for free, and that they could have very easily employed the option to simply recapture their lost ad revenue by garnishing it from David's live stream. The fact that CNN is abusing Google's flawed copystrike system to further control who we can and cannot watch,read or listen to for our news coverage is a direct attack on the men a women who devote their day to day lives to ensure that we have the most unbiased accurate reporting that we possibly can. We ask that google update their copy strike policy regarding live streams to employ a system in which jf a party feels that their live stream coverage of an event is being stolen,misused,corporate they are allowed to submit a copy strike however this copy strike will not shut down the stream it will in fact however divert ad revenues from said allegedly pirated stream to the original party first and forward the request to Google/Youtube to be independently reviewed. Live commentary of a live event is not piracy.
