Mediaite Editor Colby Hall didn’t like Jeff Bercovici’s piece about the media site’s use of other people’s video. You can read his lengthy response here, but if you’re time-pressed, it boils down to: 1) What we do is totally fine. 2) But AOL, Bercovici’s employer, does much worse.

So does Magnify.net, which actually hosts the clips for Abrams. But DailyFinance’s Jeff Bercovici wonders if one of the media giants will finally bring the hammer down.
