Submission + - Universal Censors News Podcast (

Snaller writes: Tech News Today does what the name says, its a podcast reporting on Tech news, Monday to Friday. They, like Slashdot, reported on the Megaupload vs Universal. But during the coverage they played a snippet of the Music video and immediate Universal Music Group had the news podcast yanked from Youtube.
Tech News Today has other outlets than Youtube, but should a music company have the right to have a news podcast removed on copyright grounds when its not even clear if said company has had any copyrights violated?
