It would seem that the obvious response is to remove their logo -- very easy
with any sort of manual editing -- just black out that corner, and then
watch the video to remove anywhere else it shows up (which happens rarely,
or at least did the last time I watched it).
Reading that article, I don't think they have a leg to stand on if you do
that, at least for the majority of the time when they're just broadcasting
speaches people make anyway from fixed camera positions.
Of course, not having a leg to stand on doesn't keep them from suing you
