I've noticed that a lot of hubs display third-party youtube videos. What's the copyright deal with youtube? I've searched the net for answers but have found conflicting reports. Most say that if the embed code is on the video, it's fair game. Is this true? I don't want to get into any trouble!
i guess it's ok to place those, since the're on youtube, they are shared among the masses, so why not.
If a shared link is included, you're free to use it.
If they don't want the video distributed, they put embedding disabled.
Otherwise, it's free publicity for them.
I've had several YouTube posters e-mail me and thank me for posting their vids on blogs and Hubs.
