In short, is there any way to get in trouble for doing this if it is a video from a user other than yourself?

You are right I have seen where an official YouTube representative said that if they do not want there videos embedded on other websites, that they should disable the ability for people to embed there videos.
I think you are right, tnvrstar. When we share someone's video, we expand their reach and their opportunity to generate income. People have the option to disable embedding if they don't want their video embedded on someone else's website.
Exactly. Wouldn't this be similar to linking to another person's site since that person gets all the revenue? The only thing I can think of on the other hand is embedding could be a little like the old trick of using frames to imply endorsement.
Look for the copyright symbol. Embedding and re-posting and verbal permission do not mean squat.
Here is what really matters: If you have an impact in what you publish and part of that impact and publication is someone else's copyrighted work. Wrong!
Erik, you obviously have no understanding of how Youtube works. I have videos on youtube and, when someone embeds it into their own site, I earn the same revenue as when someone views it on youtube.
PDXK, Where did you get your law degree, or business degree. Where did you come up with these property right conclusions?
The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that it's not copyright infringement in a case between Flava Works and myVidster.com. "as long as the visitor makes no copy of the copyrighted video that he is watching, he is not violating the copyright"
