The New York Times quotes Professor Lawrence Lessig about the Viacom suit against Google:

"How can it be bad that all the Comedy Central stuff is on there?" said Lessig, who added that YouTube "allows people to signal what is interesting and what is valuable." If Viacom, he continued, "thought about how to leverage the value instead of trying to stop it, they would be better off."
