    Hi there,

    I'm thinking of putting some embeded megavideo movies on targeted websites where they'll be a couple of affiliate offers of mine.

    I just wanted to make sure that I don't run the chance to get in trouble for some copyright claim of some sort. I don't mind the videos getting removed on megavideo after a short while, but I don't want my websites to be the victims of legal claims.

    Of course some websites try to scare people by saying you could get sued, but I wonder if it's true since you just embed content from another website.

    Thanks in advance for any answers

    If it's hosted at megavideo and you are embedding then it is them that are responsible for the copyright of the content. If it ever came to it you could argue that the copyright issue is theirs as they were offering an embed code.
