Watching the local news. They show a clip of Elvis singing jailhouse rock from the movie. They font it "Courtesy YouTube" instead of the film license holder or studio. CNN has done the same thing.

So fair use now extends to pulling material off YouTube and just crediting them?

I know, crazy, isn't it? It's not piracy if you're stealing ti from some other pirate.



"Pirate's Code???"
"Well... more of a guideline, really..."

Mark, you forgot to credit where you ripped the photo.

Not only that, but you can use any popular music you want and just slap on a credit to the artist. Very handy.

That's interesting. Because saying "courtesy of YouTube" is assuming that YouTube owns the content.

So this begs the question, does YouTube (Google) automatically own any content uploaded? I believe this is definitely a NO answer. However, if someone uploads a clip of Elvis, is the clip being used by CNN vs the actual footage of Elvis which clearly is not legally available from YouTube? This is getting into semantics.

Who has better lawyers - Elvis Presley Inc or Turner Broadcasting/CNN?
