I guess I’ll just use this thread for a youtube related question. Im still confused on the official word regarding youtube material like movie trailers being used in activeden files. If the trailer is from an official source on youtube like the channel of sony pictures (http://www.youtube.com/user/SonyPictures) its ok to use?
you can only if absolutely sure you’re allowed by copyright holder.

which basicly means that if SonyPictures think you are not, you will be held responsable for copyright infringement.

Yeah its all a big if… maybe it would be cool to compile a list of “professional” youtube content like movie trailers that we are 100% allowed to use :)

i see no ways to be 100% sure other than getting an official response by copyright holder

which i hardly believe will ever happen….

I’m pretty sure you can load any kind of video from YouTube, first because you’re using the YouTube player and so it’s YouTube responsible for their contents, second because if someone is using YouTube to share their videos they must agree that their videos could be loaded into YouTube custom players (unless they’re not available for embedding).

So, I’d go ahead and I’d embed whatever I want ;-)

i had same arguments chatting with admins.

if something goes wrong, you’ll be responsable.

PK is right. Whoever uploads the video has the option to prevent embedding. So it’s fair game if they choose to allow it.
