Even those of us who have been following the discussions about SOPA and PIPA have been having a hard time figuring out some of the exact details. First, SOPA and PIPA are different bills and have different specific provisions. Second, SOPA has not yet made it out of the House committee and amendments are still being debated on it. Third, since the last time ...

I don't believe there is a way to do this upon uploading the video. I believe the only way you can provide evidence that you are not infringing upon anyone's copyright is once they claim you are infringing upon someone's copyright. Then you will be able to reply to their request for proof of permission with whatever you'd like that you believe will help ...

Here's the relevant line from the Vimeo Guidelines (https://vimeo.com/help/guidelines): No screen-captures of video games or gameplay videos, even if edited. (Exception! Game developers can upload examples of their own work. Machinima videos with a story also are allowed, but must be labeled as such in the video description to avoid deletion.) So, ...

The head of YouTube user experience gave a TED talk about copyright issues, and how they work with the rights owners. Some companies are suing YouTube over this very issue. It seems that if YouTube can argue that they do everything they can to stop copyright violations, and pull down everything they know is illegal, i would think the same concept would ...

Google doesn't guarantee copyright status etc. etc., but in the HTML of the book description you can find a lot of information enclosed in a script tag, for example: <script>_OC_addFlags(... {"volume_id":"qyi8-5g8dzAC","is_ebook":true,"volumeresult": ... ,"sample_url": ... ,"is_browsable":true,"is_public_domain":true}, ...);</script> Checking ...

Yes, you can get a strike. ContentID (an automated copyright detection tool) is scanning all videos, regardless of privacy status, and while it can't strike* you directly, it can block the video and tell the copyright holder "look, here's a private video that you can't see, but I'm 99.9% confident that the part from 0:00:00 to 2:21:13 is your movie. Do you ...

You don't share it. All the generated advertising revenue goes to the copyright owner/claimant. Depending on the copyright owner’s policy, some Content ID claims prevent certain material from being available on YouTube. Others allow the video to remain live, while directing the advertising revenue to the copyright owners of the claimed content, like music....

I doubt this answers How bad does it need to be for me to avoid copyright claim on YouTube? but maybe explains the downvote. there is no definitive test for determining whether your use of another's copyrighted work is a fair use. In effect, all copyright infringement, or not, is a matter of opinion, so presumably the OP would be off topic on that count. ...

Photopin.com, which indexes photos from flickr.com, supports partially this feature. It is still not entirely compliant with the CC attribution requirements mentioned in the question. On Photopin, once you find an image, you hover over it and click "get photo" which brings up a dialog as such: The last part "Grab HTML for Attribution" is a step in the ...

What does [the video received too many views] mean? There are restrictions on views and video length for YouTube's enhancement and editing features. Am I understanding this problem correctly? If you "save as", you make a new video while preserving the current video as-is. The new one won't have any views. Is there any alternative? Getting a ...

Short answer: Take out the essential information from that HTML snippet and write it in your description in plain text. The same information is conveyed and there should be no problem. Like thus: Music from "Reappear" by Chris Zabriskie (CC BY 3.0) http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Chris_Zabriskie/Reappear The whole point of the CC Attribution (CC BY) ...

Copyright violation is one of the criteria for "Speedy Deletion". Simply edit the file page(s) violating copyright and put at the top of the page. {{db-filecopyvio}} There is lots and lots of information at Wikipedia: Copyright violation.

Apparently Microsoft considers MSN to be a service. When I read the fine print on the notices of infringement page for Microsoft services MSN is listed: This form is for reporting copyright or trademark infringements for any Microsoft service, such as MSN, Hotmail, Windows Live, Windows Azure, SkyDrive, Zune, Messenger or Xbox. This form is not for ...

There are websites where you can buy the rights to songs specifically for these videos. When I started making videos with very popular artists I thought it looked very professional...Little did I know I was violating the terms of service and I got into trouble. Also got all the videos that I had on my channel muted so nobody could hear the song OR me. My ...

According to the FAQ, when YouTube detects an infringing video there are three options for the copyright holder: There are three usage policies—Block, Track or Monetise. If a rights owner specifies a Block policy, the video will not be viewable. If the rights owner specifies a Track policy, the video will continue to be made available on YouTube and ...

It's a quote, and they link to the original source. I don't think they need to provide an additional download, as you can find the exact same text on wikipedia. It's not edited. (IANAL)
