How Do I stay out of trouble and avoid copyright infringement and General Things not to do to stay out of trouble online with all the social sharing sites like YouTube Facebook etc.
What Not to do on social sharing sites under DMCA>>
Its when you attempt to steal and use as your own others trademarks, trade names, service marks, images, copyrighted work, logos etc then you are breaking copyright law. Its also against the law to download and host others work directly and use it as your own on your own servers. See the difference?
Do not post nudity and violent content, use someone else’s picture as your own, or steal and use trademarks as your own and don’t download and alter content made by others. Don’t attack, threaten or harass others in your videos or posts.
If you read all the fine print in YouTube, Facebook and on other sites you will know that you are basically giving them and their users the right to use and distribute your content. Its all about social sharing of everything but within the rules. Just use common sense and don’t do the things outlined in this paragraph and you will stay out of trouble.
Am I allowed to Link to or Embed Videos?
Yes, Linking to or embedding someones video and not altering it is what you are allowed to do. That’s why there is a ton of social sharing sites now. Just do not claim it as your own, or alter it or download it or use someones logos and trade marks.
General Information to Help Paint a Picture of How Someone would like to see their pictures and videos used and not to be used
Use my videos and pictures, and link to, or embed them, and promote them all around the web I want you too. Just don’t steal my logo and start selling fishing shirts and hats with it and using my content for sale, see? Yup I think you got it.
Just like I wont sell shirts or anything for that matter with your logo on it, but all those video shares of my videos and your videos by everyone on the social websites may bring you and I the exposure to help us sell our own brand merchandise and build our brands and readership to our blogs etc etc.! Don’t take my videos and start hacking them up and putting your logo on it just embed it or link to it and its all good!
I don’t mind going anywhere on the web seeing my video or pictures there just so long as I do not see a woo commerce store full of shirts and mugs with my logos and pictures on them! Or my videos recreated with someone else’s logo streaming across the headline using it as their own to sell their own stuff! I want to go to a site and see all my videos embedded or linked to gaining me exposure so that people will get to know and then google my brand name and come to my website and read my articles, and shop and buy my products with my logos on them!

Legal DMCA linking embedding information final thoughts:
This article is not made to be taken as legal advice in your specific situation as yours may be a complicated matter requiring a lawyer versed in such matters.
This is general information pertaining to the legality of sharing and embedding videos which is of our concern and pertains to most. If you do not want your videos shared or on the internet, do not upload them to any host provider period is the best bet. Especially private, family affairs and intimate videos and others of a personal nature. Then they will not be shared or potentially downloaded/pirated by anyone. Be careful and think twice before posting sensitive family content anywhere on the internet. Be sure to get approval of all those in the video as well.
Now, Knowing that you want video and memes etc shared go upload them to YouTube, Facebook etc, realizing you are granting such rights for them to be shared and embedded and linked to as this is what these social sites do! But if anyone alters it, harasses you, etc. File a Legal Digital Millennium Copyright Act complaint its your right. P.S> This is our logo, do not use it….. 🙂 Just kidding please do use it but only by linking back to any one of our pages on this site! Better yet Pin them all!
