I'd like to start a website of sports video highlights. The website will link to other sites (like YouTube) that may or may not have the legal right to post the highlights, depending on whether they have a deal in place with the copyright holder (e.g., ESPN).
1) Am I allowed to link to both kinds of content, or only the content that YouTube is permitted to broadcast? (Sometimes it isn't clear to me if YouTube, Hulu, etc., have a deal in place or not, as at this link: http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/83545242/)
2) Am I allowed to capture and show static screenshots of the videos I see online, and post them on my site? The links would either be next to the image or encoded within it, so when the visitor clicks on the image he'd be taken to the YouTube video.
Many thanks in advance!
