Free Speech Battle Over Online Parody of 'Colbert Report'

MoveOn, Brave New Films Sue Viacom For Illegal Takedown of YouTube Video 

San Francisco - The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) asked a federal court today to protect the free speech rights of MoveOn.org Civic Action and Brave New Films after their satirical send-up of "The Colbert Report" was removed from YouTube following a baseless copyright
complaint from media giant Viacom.

The video, called "Stop the Falsiness," was created by MoveOn and Brave New Films as a tongue-in-cheek commentary on Colbert's portrayal of the right-wing media and parodying MoveOn's own reputation for earnest political activism. The short film, uploaded to YouTube in
August 2006, includes clips from "The Colbert Report" as well as humorous original interviews about show host Stephen Colbert. In March of this year, Viacom -- the parent company of Comedy Central -- demanded that YouTube take "Stop the Falsiness" down, claiming the
video infringed its copyrights.

"Our clients' video is an act of free speech and a fair use of 'Colbert Report' clips," said EFF Staff Attorney Corynne McSherry. "Viacom knows this -- it's the same kind of fair use that 'The Colbert Report' and 'The Daily Show' rely upon every night as they parody other channels' news coverage."

Tonight on Saturday Night LiveNeil Young

Neil Young's "latest" release "Live at Massey Hall" taped in Toronto January of 1971 will be featured. Rolling Stone Magazine's David Fricke gives it a 4-star review. It's a powerful confident performance from a slightly weathered sounding and incredibly gifted 25-year old. 

This release, just out, has debuted at number 6 on The Billboard 200, Young's second-highest debut ever. We will also play a good portion of "Live at Fillmore East", also recorded in 1971 and released last fall. He is accompanied by Crazy Horse.

The set finishes with a few cuts from 1993's "Unplugged".
