YouTube Simpsons Subpoena Spotlights Copyright Insanity
Commentary  |  1/26/2007  | 
No, this isn't another legal tussle or media mess involving O.J. or Judith Regan. It's a Web copyright battle touched off by that overrated weekly animated series starring Homer and Marge. And, as with most copyright disputes, the online data path leads directly to YouTube.

Commentary  |  1/5/2007  |
