2d Cir. cites Youtube

Here is a link to the 2d Circuit's decision in Dickerson v. Napolitano, 604 F.3d 732 n.1 (2d Cir. 2010), which cites Youtube to explain the cinematic reference that begat Operation Stinking Badges.

I understand the court explaining (or feeling the need to explain) the pop-culture reference. I question the wisdom of citing to what is quite possibly an unauthorized infringing excerpt of the film. Also, given the tranisent nature of such YouTube postings, the URL link probably adds little to someone reading the decision some thirty years on when "YouTube" will have the same relevance then as GreenStamps does today.
