Political campaign uses KOAM news footage
A sure sign elections are just a few months away are the political ads you see popping up all around you, including here on KOAM-TV. We want to make our policy clear.
KOAM/KFJX does not endorse any political candidate or issue. When you see KOAM footage used in a political ad, like one that is currently airing for a Kansas Congressional candidate, it is used under the fair use legal principal.
- Fair Use
- Fair use allows some organizations, including political candidates and journalists, to use copyrighted material without consent.
- The Federal Communications Commission requires broadcast stations to run uncensored political advertising provided by candidates.
