If I make a video of a trip and put a music track as the background music but give credit to the artist in the description of the video, is that copyright violation? I bought the song myself of iTunes. So why do social sites keep taking off my videos? Are they technically right to do so?
thedude is correct... you own the song but you dont own the right to distribute it as you wish...
I've seen home made vids on youtube where a lil popup will say summet like 'audio courtesy of EMI music'
im guessing if you contact the company that owns the copyright to the song and they agree you will be able to add the music 2 your vid and not have youtube disable it
FYI I use yahoo video cus 4 sum reason their not as strict... ;)
Of course they are right to do so...have you ever read the itunes or the CD license agreements? My guess is no.
Have you read copyright.gov (it's hard reading, but worthwhile...) you own a license to use the music for your own *private* non commercial use...a youtube video is a public broadcast. Therefore, the music companies will not allow it.
well I've noticed that celebrities like taylor swift seem to get away with it.. does it mean they actually contact the company and all?
id guess no way around it...
google are real strick with all this copyright malarkey
or is there pretty much no way around it? (other than the yahoo video tip)
