    Anything with material that doesn't belong to the poster on youtube is in copyright infringement.  Sometimes a record label will put a claim on the video but that doesn't necessarily mean they want you to take it down.  Many times they do it so they advertise on the video and/or post a link to itunes where you can buy the song.  Same rules apply for people who post highlights from movies and TV shows. Shows like The Office will allow you to post highlight clips you made yourself but NOT entire episodes and shows like SNL won't let you post anything.

    If you don't own 100% of the content in your video, you aren't eligible for the youtube monetizing either.
