  •  C-SPAN (0+ / 0-)

    From their site:

    C-SPAN is a private, non-profit company, created in 1979 by the cable television industry as a public service. Our mission is to provide public access to the political process. C-SPAN receives no government funding; operations are funded by fees paid by cable and satellite affiliates who carry C-SPAN programming.

    I had always thought they received public funding.  This is a tough one.  If it's offered as a public service, and they have exclusive rights, their material should be in the public domain, IMHO.
