honeymoon videos youtube
You just got married, and are traveling the world with her new partner on his honeymoon. A good friend who filmed the wedding and reception has been completed to assemble the images. It has been posted on YouTube so that both can relive your wedding day on their honeymoon.
The video is wonderful. This illuminates several points it lost in the emotion of the day. Your friend has even included his song "Endless Love" as background music for video.
After of the honeymoon, as you unpack the doorbell rings. Opening the door to find a man asking for the signature of a package. You think, "the aunt or uncle who must send money "? When the dealer smiles, hands the package and says," You have been served. "you are the surprise and horror.
Confused, you tear the package open to find a suit for $ 10,000 for copyright infringement. One wonders to himself – Could this be true? How did infringe copyright? Out of curiosity, scanning the pages of the application of a logical explanation. Then include "illegal use Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross in the wedding video posted on YouTube. "
With all the attention that YouTube has received demand Viacom for $ 1 billion for the unauthorized distribution and may violate copyright laws, everyone has overlooked a possible wave of lawsuits to come. Those are for the vast majority of online videos that are made by cameramen small house that have included music in their videos is not licensed for use.
Usually music publishers and record labels have turned a blind eye to the house and wedding videographers who produce their own work. Shared with an audience that is usually less 10 personal friends and relatives, these cameramen home but have been ignored for years. This was before sites such as YouTube, Google Video, ChickShack, and a handful AsSeenInVT others began to create an outlet for anyone with a video camera. Now videographers home should be warned. Soon may be involved in lawsuits illegal use of a musical recording protected property, fines for those who might be in excess of $ 15,000 per song.
Remember how fiercely the recording industry went after everyone, from kids to old ladies that songs downloaded from sites like Napster? may be only a matter of time until they start going after photographers in the same way.
Most home videographers are not aware of the limitations on the use of music protected by copyright. The large number of videographers house mistakenly assume that they can synchronize or place any type of music you want in video production. In the past, a small house and a Wedding Videographer could escape this. The problem is that these wannabee Quentin Tarantino's already begun to distribute its products to more than a few friends and family. A video loaded line is the market potential of hundreds of thousands or even millions of viewers, and if you created something popular through YouTube, it may be the next victim.
Local television stations in the U.S. may pay tens of thousands of dollars for licensing music for their stations. This price can go to the millions if artists want to use popular songs.
To Camera productions which have shot in places like YouTube and now they're nervous, let me educate a bit about how the licensing.
In short, the copyright laws of the state that any type of music under the protection of copyright can not be used for any type of production video, press presentations, websites, etc – ie without the approval of the copyright owner. Several types of licenses are usually required. These can include some or all of the following: Synchronization, Performance and Master licenses.
Now, before stress the fact that no one can see his great masterpiece or that the RIAA is bad for you – there is a solution. First, you must remove the copyrighted music that you have in her videos. Then you have the option of writing their own music for your video (most of us are not musically creative enough to continue this path), or music from a licensed online music production library.
Online Music Libraries Production lease usually the music of their individual catalogs or a per-use basis, called a drop, or blanket licenses that cover the entire project. The advantages of libraries online music production are the scope, depth and breadth of the catalogs. Prices range greatly depending on many variables.
Most production libraries do not create music specifically for amateur photographers, but recently a music based on the production of LA library call TunEdge Music announced that as of special licenses for web distribution. TunEdge Music is providing access to its online catalog and for a reasonable price his music can be licensed specifically for online creations.
