Using Stock Footage - no copies / one showing
on Dec 9, 2011 at 2:24:45 pm

Does anyone know the usage rights/permissions on using stock footage from YouTube for a sales presentation? We are using a commercial song because no copies will be made and it will be shown once.

Your knowledge is very much appreciated.

There is no such thing as "stock footage" on YouTube. That footage isn't sold as stock footage for use in other projects...nor is it meant to be used as stock footage. Grabbing it without permission is illegal.

Use of a commercial song without permission is also illegal. Doesn't matter if it is only for one showing.

There are actually two ways where you can use footage from YouTube without obtaining permission:
(1) situations that are defined under "Fair Use", which are things like news reporting and education (e.g., showing a clip to your students in a classroom for the purpose of the lesson), but a sales presentation certainly doesn't count for that.
(2) if the person posting the material has marked it as being in the public domain using a creative commons "CC0" declaration. Even then it's best to tread carefully (e.g., make sure that the person who put it up actually has the right to make that declaration).

Number of times/copies doesn't matter. The moment you show something to another person you are deemed to have "published" it, and if you haven't got permission to use the material, you'd be breaking the law at that point.

I completely overlooked your post. I read the first and scrolled to the bottom. Sorry.
