Councillor who posted videos of meeting saved from suspension

Tribunal Appeal Set for Councillor Posting YouTube Meeting Clips « E-Government Bulletin Live:

A Brighton and Hove city councillor who has posted publicly-available clips of council meetings onto video-sharing website YouTube has been temporarily saved from suspension by a national tribunal.

A complaint against Jason Kitcat, a Green Party councillor for Regency Ward in Brighton and Hove, was filed last year to the council’s standards committee by a Conservative councillor, Ted Kemble, after Kitcat posted clips of meetings to YouTube and his own blog featuring himself asking fellow councillors questions about local issues ( http://bit.ly/d8EuX4 ). The complaint alleged that Kitcat had failed to treat fellow councillors with respect and that he had breached the council’s copyright in republishing the videos. According to Kitcat, the councillor filing the complaint had not himself featured in any of the clips.
