A software project which has been forced to cease operations due to legal action.

The very first Foxed project was "Aliens Quake". 20th Century Fox forced users to stop distributing the software on the grounds that it infringed on their IP. Since the introduction of the DMCA many other proejcts have beeen Foxed including the DeCSS DVD cracking software.

Open-source advocates hope that the MONO project is not Foxed by Microsoft.

v. FOXed, FOX'ed

1) Slang The act of canceling a show within a short time span (anything under a half season, especially if within 3 or 4 episodes). Named after the FOX television network, well known for such practices.
Damn it, they FOXed "Firefly".

political and media term derived from the strategy of unfair and unbalanced media reporting solely for the purpose of killing any candidate that does not agree with the big business mantra. Derivation orignally from FOX network. Present tense "foxing." While it is the global big business interest pulling the strings, terms such as "gay marriage," "illegal aliens," "tax and spend liberal" and "abortion" are used as buzz words in foxing a candidate, while big business uses the buzz word "conservative" to conceal it's real identity.
Obama's been foxed all month.

The television equivalent of being "fucked" has happened to many shows under the fox television label, including but not limited to: Firefly, Futurama or any other show that had potential. Also a synonym for bureaucratic failure in the sphere of television.
Damn, that show was great, too bad it got foxed over.

To be phased out or phase out someone you are seeing and unwillingly put them in the friend zone.

Foxing generally ends with a "it's not you, it's me" text...or no text if you've been heavily foxed.

Getting Foxed is generally worse then getting dumped because in the lead up to your foxing run the risk of engaging in the following regrettable behaviour; a) send to incessant text messages to the Foxer b) clear your diary in the hope the Foxer will make time for you c) facestalk instastalk twitstalk
Girl: Heyyy, sorry I haven't been in contact lately, I have really enjoyed hanging out with you and I think you're awesome but I think we should be mates
Guy: That's cool I didn't really like you anyway.
Girl: There's no need to be a prick because you got foxed

To be fooled, duped, or taken in by the spin, invented facts, numerous logical fallacies, bias, and personal attacks that Fox News Channel engages in.

To be deliberately deceived by the propaganda tactics that Fox uses: http://journalism.indiana.edu/news/oreilly-study-generates-national-attention/

Similar to being Rushed by similar tactics by Rush Limbaugh or being Drudged by believing a Drudge Report link from a dubious source.
I wonder how many viewers got Foxed when Bill O'Reilly claimed that Nixon never shook hands with Chairman Mao.

A lot of teabaggers sure got Foxed in that phoney grassroots campaign.

Alternative for the word fucked, used amongst those who's parents dislike foul language. Orginates from a mispronunciation of fucked, when fucksed accidentally slipped out.
Oh dude, too many wolfbanes, I'm Foxed.
