Levine writes, “TVEyes said it would continue to provide ‘alerts and search results, including full text, based on our index,’ and any ‘audio or video content publicly posted by Fox on the Internet that contains monitored keywords.’

“The company also urged anyone upset about the change to contact Fox Network Group COO Brian Sullivan.

“In February, The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit officially sided with Fox News over TVEyes, ruling that the video content it provided did not meet the standard of fair use and could no longer be offered.
