CBS refuses Gateway for copyright URL in ad
CBS, angry over a URL in a Gateway commercial, refused to carry that ad from the bovine-friendly computer company. ""We don't accept advocacy advertising, and this falls under that umbrella," said Dana McClintock, a network spokesman."

The URL, www.ripburnrespect.com, is for a copyright education site sponsored by Gateway. It includes introductions to fair use and free music on-line.

RipBurnRespect is a public service program supported by Gateway to help music fans understand the ways that digital media formats can make music more enjoyable – as well as some of the responsibilities that come with using this powerful technology. We also want to make sure that artists and the recording industry hear the consumer’s voice – after all, their purchases keep the industry going.

(thanks to Marsha Debonis!)
