    Hello guys,

    first off i just want to remind you that i am new to IM. only 1 month in and still soaking in tons of information. so any creative criticizm is greatly appreciated. if you have anything negative to say then its like yelling at a baby that doesnt know any better until he learns.

    so my question is: can you get any sort of ban or in trouble for recording someone else's youtube video using software like cantasia and reposting it to youtube under your own account with a link directing traffic to your own site at the bottom description?

    i know this could be a yes and no reply so to narrow it, - for example: if i wanted to record a MTV performance i found on youtube, re-upload it onto youtube under my account and directing traffic to my celebrity themed site (something very general), would i get my youtube acc banned? or any other punishments?

    that is not allowed and you risk losing your youtube account

    on the bright side, YT accounts are free so lots of people take the risk and just reload the videos on a new account once the first one gets closed. or spread the videos out over many accounts.

    thanks for the quick feedback. i think i will do your recommended strategy and create a couple of youtube accounts and try to generate traffic through youtube videos.

    thanks again.!!

    yes it can get banned, but how long before it does is the real question. keep a few yt accounts on deck and you'll be fine. i'm sure think the person who's video you copied can go after you for copyright infringement so..... be careful i guess
