    Hey,

    Everybody here knows that when you use pictures belonging to someone else, you might be in trouble for copyright infringement.

    Now.. what if I take a screenshot image from a YouTube video, owner of the video can still sue me?


    Thanks!

    Depends on the video, if it uses copyright free footage then you'll be ok, if not it's still the copyright of the owner

    If the video is copyright protected and you take permission, it would be good. In case, if you use the content that is copyright by the owner and you use it without permission, it may lead you to danger.
