    Say I took footage from a popular video on youtube, changed the title and made my own video and then in the description gave a link to my ebook, would it be illegal?

    I know the original owner can file for copyright, but could I get into more trouble?

    I dont think you would get into any more trouble other than copyright

    In my opinion, at the moment the most you are going to risk it's your YT channel to be shut down, but going forward I guess it will become more and more riskier.
    In a ten years or earlier, I'm pretty sure most of the technique that now are just blackhat will become illegal.
