Broadcast Yourself meets Fair Use

The Electronic Freedom Foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union, Public Knowledge, and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School has created Fair Use Principles for User Generated Video Content to enshrine the principles of Fair Use and protect free expression by providing guidelines to content publishers (such as YouTube).

The principles are designed to protect transformative, creative uses of copyrighted material and ensure that filters are not set to automatically delete any content that might be uploaded with pre-existing material without some review to see if the content is combined in a new, creative manner.
