Videos and Audios, as well as YouTube Shared Links are used under the doctrine of Fair Use.


Fair use is the right to use a copyrighted work under certain conditions

without permission of the copyright owner. 

The statute provides that fair use of a work

“for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching”

is not an infringement of copyright.

One important consideration is whether the use in question

advances a socially beneficial activity like those listed in the statute:

criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research.

Other important considerations are whether the use is

commercial or noncommercial

and whether the use is “transformative.”

"Transformative:" is defined as causing a marked change in someone or something.

A work is transformative if, in the words of the Supreme Court,

it “adds something new, with a further purpose or different character,

altering the first with new expression, meaning or message.”

Therefore, we encourage you to provide your comments related to those pages

that provide "SHARE" links to audio, video or YouTube.
