    hey guys I have a questions

    are videos that people film for themselves also copyrighted?

    for example some people went to a party and filmed several minutes there (their dialogs/something funny etc) and upload that to the internet
    Can i use that video? is it copyrighted or not? (for youtube for example)


    or another example - "fail videos". whre people like riding a bike and then fall off and upload that to youtube. a lot of channelslike failarmy use that footage in their videos so that meansall those private filmed videos are not copyrighted and we can use them?
