    I have a video clip of the CEO of Palm introducing the Foleo on CNBC today and his first point he launches into as a differentiator is that it is instant on. Well unfortunately it was more like instantly not on, in fact it simply would not turn on. He quickly closes the screen and they cut to a previously recorded Palm demonstration of the unit. Anyway, I want to post it on youtube so we can check it out, but what is the deal with content like this that I recorded from CNBC?

    You are expressly allowed to reproduce reasonable portions of copyrighted content for the purpose of analysis or criticism. This is referred to as "fair use", Google it if you're not familiar with the term.

    As long as it's a relatively short clip, this seems like a pretty straightforward fair use argument to me, since the purpose is most definitely criticism. Even if the copyright owner disagrees, it's highly unlikely that anything worse than the video clip being taken down would happen.
