There seems to be a lot of confusion lately :confused:, and uncertainty , relating to the issue of possible copyright infringement by internet marketers like ourselves, who "embed" videos and photos into their blogs or websites...
Youtube has been offering this feature for quite some time and now there is Pinterest, which seems to make things even more complicated...
My question is very simple: Is it allowed to go to Youtube or Pinterest, pick a video (or an image), copy its embed code and paste it into MY blog/website or whatever ??? YES or NO ???
If it is OK, why there are so many arguments about it ???
If it is not OK, how come it is done by two international social-networks and nobody stops it ? Why does the "small guy" has to be exposed when it is, actually, the social-network that made him believe there is nothing wrong ???
Please ! Does anyone understand what is the EXACT legal situation ???
