I’m embedding this video here on GreaterFalls.com for the simple reason that I can – the embed link for the video is provided on the Burlington Free Press website as one of several options.
Here’s the email sent to the blogger by the associate editor of the paper:
Kilian, Michael [email protected]

to me, Ryan, Mike
Your March 19 post on Green Mountain Daily represents an inappropriate use of a Burlington Free Press video, “T.J. Donovan running for Attorney General against Sorrell.”
We allow sites to link to this copyrighted material, but not to post the content themselves.
Please remove the actual video from Green Mountain Daily and let me know when this occurs. You may keep the link to the video on the Burlington Free Press website.
Avoid this inappropriate use of our video or other content in the future. Thank you.
Burlington Free Press

Getting the embed code is literally a matter of just a few clicks:
