I just read a hub by hubber shibashake, the link is given below.
I am wondering now if embedding you tube videos is a copyright violation in some cases, where the uploader has no rights to upload the video in the first place and what can be done if one has embedded a video for which the uploader has no rights.
Also how does one know if the video one is using in a hub is a copyright violated video?
Can veteran hubbers throw some light on whether you tube videos in general or otherwise can lead to a banned Adsense account?
The link to the above mentioned hub is http://shibashake.hubpages.com/_20nje79 … fringement
Rajan! I read toy tubes and got all excited! Awwww... Did you mean "you tube"??
By placing the ability to embed on youtube videos, the owner is giving implied consent to be linked to by any webpage. The responsibility to ensure copyright also rests on the original video poster.
If you know it's copyrighted, don't use it and contact youtube about the video so they can take it down.
If you don't know, but it is copyrighted, people won't make a complaint against you - it'll be against youtube, which will take it down. Your video link will then be broken and hubpages will tell you that it's broken, so you can change it.
So it's no biggie. Just don't be the person uploading the copyrighted videos.

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and...
