British TV channel Sky News has been streaming the ongoing debate between Republican presidential candidates on YouTube tonight, letting those without a cable subscription or US residency watch Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Rand Paul and company face off. But Sky News may not have filled out the paperwork correctly — the stream has been pulled with a note saying “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Fox News Network, LLC.”

It’s not clear what happened yet or on what grounds Sky News was able to broadcast Fox News’s footage; however, both Fox News and Sky News are part of Rupert Murdoch’s sprawling empire. Such is media.
