    On the negative side, if Fox does indeed have one of those licenses, it appears REM has little or no legal recourse.

    On the positive side, Fox's response is just one more example of how sleazy their "news" operation is. Can you imagine a professional news organization coming back with such a snotty response?

    There is no more news reporting, only infotainment.

    How petty is it for them to use "Losing My Religion" during the DNC? :p :rolleyes:

    Major networks like radio stations all have license agreements, not sure what could be done.

    As much as I dislike Fox, I have to agree. It's not as if artists get to pick and choose who plays their music. Once you put your song out there, it should be available to anyone willing to pay for it.

    But I do say ... I love the "puff adder" line. I'll have to use it myself one day.
