Fair Use Project Executive Director Anthony Falzone is quoted several times in this story about Fair Use on the the internet and specifically Google in Europe:

... "If this signals a direction that other European countries follow, then look out," says Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Fair Use Project, an Internet research program at Stanford University Law School. ...

Says Stanford’s Mr. Falzone: "It strikes me as a search for a deep pocket." ...

Mr. Falzone’s advice? "European countries have to be careful in what they do," he says. "If they make it too onerous for Google to operate there, Google could just say, "the heck with it."
