The title says it all. Deleting later probably.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

More legal information:
On January 1, 1978, the Copyright Act of 1976 was enacted. This federal U.S. law secured copyright for any work ever made by an author on or after the first day of 1978 for the rest of their life, plus seventy years. As an example, the Michael Jackson album Off the Wall won't fall into the public domain until 2079, meaning that until then you don't have the right to copy it and share it.
Doing so anyway is commonly referred to as piracy, although in the world of online video making it's also known as freeloading.
And until 2079, the estate of Michael Jackson, or the owners of the rights to Off the Wall, have every right to sue you for redistribution without a license.

Using maybe 10-30 second clips is one thing. Using the entire fucking video is a whole other thing. That's bad.

I agree, and I uploaded EmperorLemon's videos for news reporting.

I think you should archive it on YouTube, and private it.

Of course, this only applies to those in the United States. I would recommend finding the laws for your country, but also be aware that VidLii is hosted on United States servers, and so is beholden to U.S. law.

I agree up until you say "higher up creators" or whatever. Only higher up creators? Bad idea. Great video though, sorry about whatever's missing.

The reason I said "higher up creators" is because, like on YouTube, people would abuse the system. I feel like there should be a set group of people here on VidLii who can decide whether or not a video should be taken down.

That's weirdly worded I'm so sorry.

You bring up a good point. We need a sort of, "Vidlii heroes" where higher youtube channels can flag videos for copyright infringement. I only make the connection to "YT Heroes" because your idea is essentially that, but done RIGHT.
