Copyright hits the Republican presidential race

Apparently John McCain has been told to extract Fox news clips from his adverts but Rudy Giuliani has been allowed to used loads of Fox material, including the dame material they have demanded McCain deletes. Mitt Romney also has Fox footage but as yet has not received a cease and desist letter. I take it Mr Murdoch, thought to be a close friend of Giuliani, is not too keen on McCain then? McCain is unlikely to get the Republican nomination (though Murdoch's henchmen must be concerned?) but I hope he learns a lesson from the Fox action about the abusive actions of certain types of IP businesses.
