Lecturer in Law and Executive Director of the Fair Use Project Anthony Falzone is quoted the San Jose Mercury News Blog about a lawsuit filed by Yoko Ono regarding the use of part of the John Lennon song "Imagine."

“The right to quote from copyrighted works in order to criticize them and discuss the views they may represent lies at the heart of the fair use doctrine,” said Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Fair Use Project, in a statement with the release. “These rights are under attack here, and we plan to defend them.”
