LISLE, IL. (ECWd) -
After claiming copyright on its board meeting videos, and then spending over 18 minutes of time we can never recover talking about the meeting videos and copyright, the CUSD 202 board decided to keep the copyright in place on advice of their attorney.
I filed a complaint with the Attorney General's Public Access Counselor's Office for a request for review of a Freedom Of Information Act violation against the Lisle CUSD 202's assertion that they held a copyright on public records (the meeting video), and their demand that I obtain permission to use all or part of it and that I could not repost, rebroadcast, or post to social media without their permission.
Knowing a public body cannot restrict the use of public records for any reason, I filed the complaint.
Today, the AG's PAC office informed me that Lisle CUSD 202 decided it would no longer assert any copyright claims on any public records obtained from them thru FOIA.
