    I guess you stumbled upon these type of Youtube videos (and so many others):


    Top 10 Movies Where the World Actually Ends


    There are so many examples (10 best sci-fi scenes/evil/somthing, 10 things you missed in Deadpool/etc.). They are all showing few (or more) scenes from the movie.


    How do they not being banned by YT for copyright infringement??

    Mainly for 3 reasons:
    1) Network: many youtubers are inside some "network company" that have agreements with the legal representatives / producers. The problems is the same in the "gaming niche". You can't upload a nintendo gameplay without be inside one of the major network (like machinima for eg.). Is the same for the movies.
    2) Law (regional and international): if you use some seconds of the movie just for informations none will strike your video.
    3) Youtube vigilante/striker: I know that there are some nations that are more free than others. It depends on who is whatching the channels. The same identical video uploaded by an user from Thailand and one from Italy can have two results: for one nation is ok and can be online for another is deleted .

    Mmmm it's very random IMHO. It depends a lot from the source and from the subject.
    The same company can make a complaint for subject A but not for the subject B.
    I think that 10/15 seconds is good. But the #3 point is the most important. Just testing you to know if it's okay. But be careful because the strike of the channel is around the corner.

    Thats the thing, I want to go all WH with this (cause I'm going to put lots of time and money into it) so I'm looking for what I'm allowed to do. I see really "serious" channels (though not official channels) that use pieces from movies/tv shows/etc that exist for many years with millions of views, I guess they are doing somehting right.
