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.

Can a hubber get in trouble for copyright infringement by embedding videos in a hub?I see a lot of embedded videos in hubs, and I would like to do the same.

Are there any copyright issues associated with posting YouTube videos in hubs?In short, is there any way to get in trouble for doing this if it is a video from a user other than yourself?

How concerned should we be about sharing videos mainly from YouTube, but also from other areas, as far as legal and copywrite issues go? Sometimes in YouTube down at the bottom it will say something like, "general youtube license." Should we approach videos the same way we approach...
