View Full Version : What's the legality of hosting viral videos?

(Kinda like break.com)
I have more than 30GB of video clips and swf files that I was thinking of adding to my soon-to-be created web site (primarily for my students to get missing work and lectures).
I have ads (real and spec), homebrew videos, and homebrew and published flash animations.

Excuse my ignorance but how can a video be viral?

IN...IFilm describes it as "Viral Video collects only the best of the World Wide Weird and puts it in one convenient place. Bloopers, blunders, flubs and free falls -- we've got it all."
It basically means all the types of movies you see at collegehumor, ebaumsworld, and more.
Bires...I'd say as long as you aren't taking something that is branded (i.e. videos straight from ebaums that say "ebaums world" on the corner) and videos that have been marked as "copyrighted"....you should be fine. But who knows....

And even it is IS branded "ebaumsworld" or something, you aren't making a profit from it right? Can't you just host it as long as they're credited?
