I linked to a youtube video in one of my Hubs. By accident i clicked on it about a week later and recieved a message that the video had been taken down due to numerous complaints of copyright infringement. This was not intentional on my part!
I received no email from anyone about this and now i'm feeling really bad. How do I avoid this happening again as i've another Hub ready to publish that has a similar link.
I've always understood that it's the person who uploaded the video who is at fault if it infringes copyright laws, and not those who simply link to it. How could a person who links to it possibly know that it infringes copyright?
You are embedding the code. Literally, the video is running off YouTube's server. Like others have said, it isn't your fault or responsibility. If you knew it to be pirated material, there could be a moral aspect or even a legal dimension, but otherwise just keep an eye on your videos regularly, relax.
I use Youtube videos too. Some videos actually say "© Video content from..." but most don't. To make sure a video is ok to be shared, go to the channel and see if the owner allows sharing. Good luck!
Thank you everyone for your swift replies. That is what I understood too Camlo. Being fairly new to Hubbing I thought maybe I missed a rule somewhere.

I have a problem. Encyclopedial.com has reprinted about a dozen of my articles, word for word, with no credit to me and without permission, and just keeps scooping more out of my hubpages. I cannot find anything on the...

I just went to edit one of my hubs and noticed that none of my embedded youtube videos are showing up. The capsule is clearly there as they still have the titles I have given them, but instead of a video there's just...
