CBC asks YouTube, Facebook to remove Conservative ad

The CBC has asked YouTube and Facebook to remove the Conservative Party’s latest attack ad against Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, arguing the ad “not only uses CBC's news footage but also re-edits” it.
“Our guiding principle is simple and clear,” CBC news editor Jennifer McGuire wrote in a blog post Friday. “No one — no individual candidate or political party, and no government, corporation or NGO — may re-use our creative and copyrighted property without our permission. This includes our brands, our talent and our content.”
The 45-second video was still available on the Conservative Party’s YouTube channel and its Facebook page as of Monday afternoon.
