Quick Advice

Really quickly. What’s the story about embedding You Tube music videos in posts? I’ve ‘discovered’ the most feel-good song I’ve heard in a long time, through one of my daughters. I don’t want to be struck off though for breaching some unknown, to me, licensing law!!

  1. My thoughts, not a legal opinion: Why don’t you just give a link and the name and your thoughts on it? You’re not making money from posting it. You’re helping market it. As long as you aren’t pirating it and putting it up without authorization, I don’t think you’re intending harm to the artist or detracting from the artist’s ability to make money. I wouldn’t imbed the music in a post, but that’s just me. Lots of people do it, but I’m uncomfortable doing it because I don’t know if the artist put it up or not. You could even say: if you like the song, buy it! Warmly, Brenda

  2. As long as you use the You Tube code, you are safe. If you had ads on your page or were making money off you would have different issues. You are safe, that is why they put the code there and also have all the venues available for sharing. It helps them get heard more.

      1. You are funny. I will watch tomorrow. Groomed the dog today, too tired to stay up. What the hell time is it for you anyway? Got to bed. Silly 🙂

  3. Short version, if it is publicly displayed on YouTube then you can ‘link’ to it on your site. This is no different than linking to another blog or site, there may be restrictions from a viewers standpoint if the youtube video is restricted but that does not effect you, the viewer will simply be blocked.

    1. Thanks. Think I’ll go for it, It’s just such a lovely, bright, upbeat tune. I was dancing with a class of Primary threes when I put it on today. Maybe it’s just me.x
