Is sharing movie trailers in youtube on my blog violation of Google Adsense policies?
Can I share movie trailers in youtube on my blog?
By doing so, am I violating the policies of Google Adsense?
If the trailers have been posted by the studio, then no. If the trailers have been posted by some random YouTube user, I wouldn't use them.
Movie studios are very proprietary over their trailers. I've seen them taken down an hour after they were put up. Ye others are still up and it's been years. They are fickle on who they go after for copyright infringement.
If the video has "Standard YouTube license" you need to read what that covers. The other licenses they offer are all CC -creative commons
To tell if a video is "share-able", If the video has a "creative commons" license (which is shown just before the description), mostly likely it will have a "share" button. That means the owner has given YOUTUBE permission to allow others to use all or part of it as they wish.
This is one of the reasons you see so many repetitive videos. If I saw one video about The Terminator movies, I saw 100 and most of them were compilations from a bunch of other YOUTUBE-r's videos.
It always stumped me why these were not considered copyright infringement when obvious copying occurred on the site. It wasn't until I learned the Creative Commons license allowed them to do it. There are several types of CC licenses and each one is different. One allows use only if you aren't making money on your use, another allows only with attribution link back to the original, etc.
I also wondered how come Schwarenegger and crew hadn't gone after these post-ers (some videos date back as old as 10 years) for copyright infringement. Perhaps they consider them good advertising, I don't know. But I'd step very carefully in this area.
Movie and music studios are notorious for suing for copyright infringement. You would do well to write to the studio licensing agent and explain your use, and get written permission before you publish. Also, they've been known to change their minds after the see the finished product and then the writer is left with no permission. So, you might want to ask them if you can submit it for their approval as well.
This is "walking on broken glass" territory and the big guys usually win because they have the most money. Good luck.
Rachel - I asked a similar question, and you answered it. Re Link's comment - the music I want to use was uploaded by someone else, and it has a "share" button. As long as I don't re-upload that song on my YouTube channel, is it OK to use here?
#Say Yes To Life - The song you want to use is under copyright; your rendition of it could be fair use. Or not. If you want to put it here on HP, you need to write to firstname.lastname@example.org, let them answer you.
I never thought about this. I've used YouTube videos without a second thought. I will be more careful in the future and I will go back and check my hubs.
I dont see why sharing (as in linking or embedding the video) in your blog would violate any policies, provided you didn't download the video from someone else and upload it on your own channel. Its free publicity for whatever movie is coming out.
I am by no means an expert on that, so dont take my word for it. If you feel uncomfortable about it, dont do it or do some extensive research.

I'm planning a hub about one particular actor in one particular scene of a movie. Without a visual representation of the actor in the scene the article would be meaningless, but no free or non-copyrighted photos appear to exist. To me this seems a classic case for Fair Use, as reflected in this...

If any content of the hub is being copied by someone and used elsewhere, its not the fault of hubber. This is nice that HP is motivating hubbers to file DMCA to the concerned site and take appropriate action,who is going to waste time to fight with the copyright violators. HP has witnessed...

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 website about who to contact, or the company that owns it. So I went to one of...

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. But I've seen comments from folks that imply that if a video was placed on YouTube without permission, which many of them are, then embedding...

About once a week I peruse my hubs to check on traffic, comments, and just generally see how things are going. One of my hubs, "What Are The Benefits of Eating Bananas," had the copyright symbol next to it. I know from past experience that this means hubpages has found my content...
