Rules on sharing videos

Postby Sir Dingo Jameson » Sat Jun 30, 2012 2:36 pm

I'm sorry if this is posted somewhere else, but I have not been able to find anything on the subject and I was wondering about it.

What are the rules on sharing videos that have been downloaded from this site? I wanted to share a couple of the videos I saw at the AMV contest last night at AX2012, but I'm not sure if that violates any rules or whatnot. Can someone point me to where this is stated or let me know if it is like, a case by case situation and I need to get the permission of the creator of the vid? Tahank you in advance for the help.

general rule of thumb is feel free to share it without restriction.

As long as you give credits to the creator.

It depends what you mean by share; mailing around to your friends or whatever is usually fine. If you are reuploading to Youtube or a similar site I would ask the creator first.

some editors require royalties to be paid in cash before they allow sharing :nose:

I was going to post them on facebook, not trying to pass them off as my own or anything like that. But I will PM the creators just to be sure.

if you mean like linking on your facebook or something, then i dont think it's even allowed for us to object, given the nature of this hobby

if you were gonna upload it to facebook, well then yeah get permission.

I'd say for sharing. Look up the popular editors that post and share their videos. It will give you an idea on what you need to do when sharing your videos. If it helps, check with the source materials for any copy infringement that you could face. Always credit your sources though.

It really comes down to a case by case basis. Different editors will react differently. The best thing to do would be to ask first.

I would say don't even bother asking. First off, the editor will never know unless you tell them and second, 99% of the editors here don't care. We all want people to see our work. Anyone who has a problem with people sharing their videos needs to re-think their priorities IMO.

I have recently been dealing with people who think precisely like this. They're tedious.

Clarification: "people who think precisely like this" meaning those who have a problem with sharing fandom.

No need to ask anybody, it's already been shared via a direct download link so it's extremely unlikely anybody would care, if they care they wouldn't upload it here to begin with....

If it's only available on youtube or something, then perhaps they don't want anybody reposting it elsewhere....so you should probably ask....these kind of people don't understand that you're not hurting there video...(usually kids though, probably why)

I've never bothered asking permission to share videos. It's one of my favorite pastimes actually, sharing videos with others. I find it's better to ask forgiveness then for permission in this instance.

I am always willing to stop sharing and take videos out of playlists and what not if I'm asked. It's very rare I ever get asked to stop sharing however.
