Does this sound like your topic?
If one shows clips of a film, TV show, Video game, or song for the use of commentary in order to review the work in question, can this fall under Free and Fair use? (i.e. video format obviously) What if one were to make money off of ads that would run on the video or the page the video is displayed on?
Are there caveats to this that I might need to know?Since I have my first response - thank you by the way. From what I gather (as I have presumed) free and fair use can be arguable and costly in court. Suppose one takes a "vlog" of mine and intercuts their commentary on it. If this is my vlog and I make money off of it, I could get it removed if they violate the four sections. Here is the additional part, suppose a site like You Tube just asks for verification that one has permission from the copyright holder regardless if it violates Free and Fair use. They are, as I assume, under their rights to determine what they will allow to have ads run on the website. For example, one can post something and if he or she does not check "enable revenue sharing" then they will not remove it - if he or she checks to enable ads and they cannot verify he or she has have , then they will remove it.
