Gawker lawsuit settled

Remember last year when Dr. Phil sued Gawker over copyright infringement? No? Well, here's the recap: Deadspin posted some exclusive footage from the Dr. Phil Show before it had aired in a majority of the country. Dr. Phil sued, claiming this had resulted in lower ratings. Tom Scocca wrote a snarky rebuttal. Last week, the footage in question was REMOVED from Deadspin.com, and Law.com reports the suit it settled, although the terms are confidential. (All I know for sure is the footage was removed.)
