Is It OK to use YouTube videos that have music?

    People are posting great videos on YouTube that have clearly professionally prepared music as part of the presentation.  One man actually stated he did not own the music and that all attribution should go to the creator, etc...except for the fact that he did not prove he had permission nor did he give attribution information.  If we use such a video, are we violating copy write laws?

      The onus is on the person who originally posted it on YouTube. It is not a copyright violation for us to share it.

    Some music videos get taken down later on because of legal violations. You will then get amessage from hubpages warning of broken links. However , all my you tube music links have survived. just choose wisely and you should be OK.
