No Jingle-Jangle Here

WNEW Jingles cannot now he heard on this site.

Metropolitan Broadcasters LLC. has claimed exclusive rights for use of WNEW jingles. As explained in a letter to us from an attorney representing the company, Metropolitan provides Internet broadcasting services from its website and uses a particular jingle as its trademark theme song. Also pending, we were told, is a federal trademark for use of the Jingle with those services.

Under warning of possible litigation, we conceded to the demand to remove all jingles from this site within ten days, by September 29, without prejudice to rights we may have now or in the future to contest Metropolitan’s claim.
