The San Francisco Chronicle quotes Executive Director of the Fair Use Project Anthony Falzone about television networks' decision to allow footage of the presidential race to be presented on YouTube:

The networks' decisions "are fantastic for anybody who has anything to say about the presidential race," said Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Fair Use Project at the Center for the Internet and Society at Stanford University. "What you're going to see in this election cycle is an explosion of people expressing themselves in different ways using video. This is going to get more people participating in the process."
