Fox News has fully prevailed in a copyright lawsuit against TVEyes, a media monitoring service that allows its users to find and share clips of broadcast news. On Friday, Fox News informed a New York federal judge that it had reached a settlement with TVEyes, putting an end to the five-year-old case. As part of the deal, TVEyes has agreed to a permanent injunction and will no longer be permitted to carry copyrighted content from Fox News.

News monitoring service TVEyes can continue to stream Fox News clips to its subscribers, but may no longer allow people to download those clips to their own computers in order to watch them offline, a federal judge has ruled.
Yesterday, CNN, CBS, NBCU, and other networks joined Fox by filing a friend of the court brief in its battle with TVEyes, a subscription based service that lets you “monitor” broadcast news.
NEW YORK (AP) — A media monitoring company distributing television clips and snippets of transcripts to customers including the White House and Congress hasn’t violated broadcasters’ copyrights by letting its customers search its database, but it’s unclear whether all facets of its business will get a judicial stamp of approval, a judge said Tuesday.
