Submission + - ABC/Disney shuts down blog exercising fair use

An anonymous reader writes: A blogger named Spocko had his blog shut down by ABC/Disney lawyers because he had posted clips from an ABC Radio-affiliated program and commented on their content, as well as informed show advertisers of what exactly they were paying for. Summaries can be found on The Daily Kos and Calling all Wingnuts as well as in a YouTube video. It is sad to see how much large media companies count on fair use, yet try to step all over it when it is used against them.
