When you use someone else's content on YouTube is very hard to avoid copyright infringement
This measure was taken to ensure that large companies, holders of copyright on their works, did not suffer losses due to users illegally discharging to the Internet the whole movie.

What is a copyright

When a natural or legal person creates an original product recorded on a physical medium, it is automatically assigned the copyright to the product. Registration of copyright is no longer needed. Owning a copyright allows a person or company to use the product in a special way. Under the protection of copyright includes such products as:
- audiovisual works, including television shows, movies and computer games on the Internet
-texts, including lectures, articles, books,
-visual products, including paintings, posters, advertising,
video games and computer programs
-dramatic works, including plays and musicals.

Is it possible to use in video products protected by copyright without breaking the law?

In some cases, the use of copyright works without infringement of the law is possible. This so-called "fair use." These include the use of the material in order to post comments, news items, criticism, research, teaching. This can be done even without the permission of the rights owner.

In all other cases, you will be the infringer of copyright, even if you specify the author in the caption to the video won't monetize the video, record content from television, at the cinema or on the radio, buy the content on iTunes, CD or DVD.

Can I record videos for YouTube and use someone else's music?

Very often in the videos created for YouTube, used music by well-known authors, for example, a well-known song. In this case we are talking about copyright infringement, and the copyright holder can accuse you of violating the law.

To legally use your desired music in the video, you need to purchase a license. It should be purchased from the company that produced the recording.
Unfortunately, companies often refuse to discuss the licensing of the use of music with individuals. But if they agree, then such a license can cost a round sum.

If you do not wish to infringe copyright and may not purchase a license, you'd better not to voice the movie at all. However, to add music on the video is possible. When you create video YouTube offers the opportunity to use one of the free ringtones, a list of which can be found in section "audio" that is marked with "musical note" under your uploaded video.
YouTube allows you to use the search on the songs. You may be lucky and you will find your desired ringtone in the list.

If you unloaded already voiced movie, then after it is published in violation of copyright will appear beside the words "matching third party content". This means that YouTube had caught you in the illegal use of the audio material. Fortunately, the situation can be corrected. Clicking on the comment takes you to a page where you will be asked to remove from the video sound. Then you will be able to choose to clip one of the songs from the free collection on YouTube.

Advice 3: How to protect copyright for songs

Suppose you wrote a song. Your music, your words, too. If the words are not yours, then you will have (if with the death of the author, not 70 years have passed) enter into a contract with the poet about what conditions you can use his poems. The contract in General, is the main way of copyright protection.
How to protect copyright for songs
Only we must remember that copyright law is twofold. On the one hand, this is a personal non-property rights, for example, your name (or pseudonym) as the author. On the other – is the exclusive right of the author to use his works. For the record: copyright infringement and misappropriation of authorship, and infringement use – if they have caused serious damage to the author, is a criminal offense (article 146 of the criminal code).
So you wrote a song. Copyright rights arise upon creation of the work and any special actions for registration are not required. Another thing is that you can copy songs to provide words: © Your Name, year of writing. You can also fix the priority: the creation date of your song (very unlikely, but could happen that someone writes the same song, and in court the question arises, who did it first). Priority you can lock in special legal offices in the Russian author's society or through self – sending the song to yourself via registered mail.
Then the question arises, what exactly do you want to protect the song. Most often threats are three: your song will be given for its will publish in CD and sales will make the money; your song is used, say, in the play, the author will not indicate you will not pay; your song will prearanged in the form of karaoke or will use in another arrangement with other words and you again do not pay. That is, you are not defending the song, you protect your right to money for the legal use of your songs. And this protection is the licensing agreement.
Here is a pitfall. If you post your song on the Internet on public portals, it means that you never really know who your song is downloaded, processed, and uses it receives for your money. Of course, there is a detective Agency that will help you to find the villains, and then claim in court or Prosecutor's office, article 146 of the... pitfall in the anonymity of the Internet. But the license agreement you enter into with a specific person or entity. And in this contract you indicate the right which uses the songs you submit (the list of exclusive rights you will find in article 1270 GK RF). What is the term you pass to the right. What monies and in what order you pay for the transferred rights. What is the responsibility of the parties for failure to comply with the terms of the contract. For example, you want to released your song (or album of 10 songs – the picture does not change) in the form of a CD, and sold them. This means that according to the license agreement you must give the Studio the rights of at least reproduction (CD release), distribution (wholesalers), public display of a fragment of the song for promotional purposes, as well as if you need to make the arrangement more technically and aesthetically high quality, and for processing the songs.
