Can I monetize videos with 1 minute movies scenes on each video?
no, idiot. If you didn't create it, you cant monetize it!
You could add commentary or something, editing the videos a bit. It's kinda risky, but not much, preferably do it with an old account
Now you can go back and play with your lovely little dolls.
lol no, it's not allowed. Any copyright content which you do not own is not allowed for monetization.
YES you can, but depending on your country you will have to abide by different laws and contingencies.
As long as you add commentary for criticism, reporting or other educational purposes you are allowed to monetize.
What's with the name calling? That's not true at all. Go take a look at channels like CinemaSins, YourMovieSucks, Phillip DeFranco
Fair use is a legal doctrine that says you can reuse copyright-protected material under certain circumstances without getting permission from the copyright owner.
Different countries have different rules about when it?s okay to use material without the copyright owner?s permission. For example, in the United States, works of commentary, criticism, research, teaching, or news reporting might be considered fair use. Some other countries have a similar idea called fair dealing that may work differently.
Courts analyze potential fair uses according to the facts of each specific case. You?ll probably want to get legal advice from an expert before uploading videos that contain copyright-protected material.
The four factors of fair use
In the United States, fair use is determined by a judge, who analyzes how each of the four factors of fair use applies to a specific case.
1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
Courts typically focus on whether the use is ?transformative.? That is, whether it adds new expression or meaning to the original, or whether it merely copies from the original. Commercial uses are less likely to be considered fair, though it?s possible to monetize a video and still take advantage of the fair use defense.
2. The nature of the copyrighted work
Using material from primarily factual works is more likely to be fair than using purely fictional works.
3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
Borrowing small bits of material from an original work is more likely to be considered fair use than borrowing large portions. However, even a small taking may weigh against fair use in some situations if it constitutes the ?heart? of the work.
4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
Uses that harm the copyright owner?s ability to profit from his or her original work are less likely to be fair uses. Courts have sometimes made an exception under this factor in cases involving parodies.
Fair use myths
There is some misinformation out there that might lead you to believe fair use automatically applies if you say a few magic words. There is actually no silver bullet that will guarantee you are protected by fair use when you use copyrighted material you don?t own. Courts will consider all four of the factors described above and weigh them on a case-by-case basis. Here are some common myths:
Myth #1: If I give credit to the copyright owner, my use is automatically fair use.
As you saw above, transformativeness is usually a key in the fair use analysis. Giving credit to the owner of a copyrighted work won?t by itself turn a non-transformative copy of their material into fair use. Phrases such as ?all rights go to the author? and ?I do not own? do not automatically mean you are making fair use of that material -- nor do they mean you have the copyright owner?s permission.
Myth #2: If I post a disclaimer on my video, my use is fair use.
As we noted above, there are no magic words that will do this for you. Posting the four factors of fair use in your video or including the phrase ?no infringement intended? won't automatically protect you from a claim of copyright infringement.
Myth #3: ?Entertainment? or ?non-profit? uses are automatically fair use.
Courts will look carefully at the purpose of your use in evaluating whether it is fair, but the three remaining factors also need to be considered. Declaring your upload to be ?for entertainment purposes only,? for example, is unlikely to tip the scales in the fair use balancing test. Similarly, ?non-profit? uses are favored in the fair use analysis, but it?s not an automatic defense by itself.
Myth #4: If I add any original material I created to someone else?s copyrighted work, my use is fair use.
Even if you?ve added a little something of your own to someone else?s content, you might not be able to take advantage of the fair use defense -- particularly if your creation fails to add new expression, meaning, or message to the original. As with all the other cases discussed here, courts will consider all four factors of the fair use test, including the quantity of the original used.
Most of the times your video will get banned because of the copyright.
Yeah fair use lets you USE it, but not make money from it! Idiot.
