The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has now included embedding copyrighted videos into the definition of copyright infringement.

Sprint singles out device deals

Sprint chief Dan Hesse during his statements at the Senate hearing on the AT&T T-Mobile merger singled out device deals as a major reason to block the merger.
