If you're watching this episode, you're not watching it on YouTube. That's because the India Today Group and Aaj Tak have sent over 50 copyright strikes and claims to Newslaundry. As a result, YouTube has kept our channel in suspended animation.

You know what they say: when life gives you copyright strikes, make educational content out of it! So, in this episode, we take a deep dive into the Copyright Act of 1957, the definition of "fair use" exceptions, and whether it can be applied to news at all.

One thing's for sure, the whole thing is super complicated. Watch.
