How I Use Movie Clips in my Videos with Fair Use | Truly Social

Nearly every week, I get a few people asking me the question: “How much do you pay for those movie and TV clips on YouTube?” When I tell them I don’t pay anything, they are shocked. So I promised a few people I’d give a lesson on something called Fair Use (or similarly, Fair Dealing in Canada and other countries).

I’m no lawyer and I’m not an expert, but I have been part of the remix culture for many years. Watch, but definitely go check out the references below because they are MUCH smarter than I am and know the legal bits (which may be my undoing one day). 😉

Sometimes inventions are not patented, and that means the creators don’t make money off their creations. Whether it’s the inventor of the video game Tetris Alexej Pajitnov, the creator of the ballpoint pen Laszlo Biro or even famed poet Edgar Allen Poe, these inventors didn’t get mega-rich off their inventions. WatchMojo counts down ten people who changed the world, and in return made no money.
