FOX SERVES CABLEVISION WITH CEASE AND DESIST LETTER FOR ENCOURAGING THEFT OF COPYRIGHTED CONTENT
October 26, 2010
Today, FOX delivered a demand that Cablevision cease and desist encouraging theft of copyrighted material. As was reported in today’s New York Daily News, Cablevision is apparently directing subscribers to illegal websites to view FOX shows, as well as coverage of NFL games and Major League Baseball’s playoffs – all copyrighted content.
Copyright law exists to protect the very creative freedoms that fuel our industry. As both a creator and owner of intellectual property – not to mention major sports franchises – Cablevision knows better and should immediately call an end to this unlawful activity.
