    I am looking to replicate a model I've noticed from an Instagram account with about a million followers. Virtually 100% of their posts are copyrighted video content. I've been following them for 6+ months now. They seem to post the same shoutout all the time - letting me know what they're doing is definitely making money. The question is... is there any reason I should hesitate before posting copyrighted content?

    Just know how to give credit to the original owners if you find out who actually owns the content you're posting.

    Yeah no sh!t - i didn't ask for the definition of copyright. I was asking what the general content of the videos are

    The other accounts I've been following aren't crediting the original owners of the content (ESPN & other major networks).

    I am not an expert on Instagram, but I've never seen anyone be banned for posting copyrighted content on there.
