WGN-TV has asked The Museum of Classic Chicago Television to pull all its WGN content -- videos of "Bozo's Circus," "Garfield Goose and Friends" and others -- due to an exclusivity agreement the station signed with the Museum of Broadcast Communications. MBC's videos are all behind a (free) passworded firewall, while MCCT's are freely viewable... could that have been an issue, too?
