  • Transcription of internet Videos / Podcasts ?

    I have a few questions relating to a potential startup:
    1) Is it legal to transcribe (write out the words) videos and podcasts available on youtube or other websites, and place them on my website?
    2) Is it legal to record (and present with video or audio) text found on other websites?
    Any links, tips, or general advice is much appreciated

    I wish to inform you that Copyright law will be violated. When any video is recorded and presented then copyrighted law will be violated. If you transcribe any video then that written transcription is not in violation of copyright law because you have created a product which is different. Copyright law involves creation of a different work then which is having copyright.

      Thanks for your quick reply! Do per chance know where I could look up the actual law/laws pertaining to internet/media copyright ? I'd love to just take your word for it, but feel like i should read it for myself.

          As more and more material gets digitized for preservation and for easier access by a wider number of people, it's important to remember that the U.S. Copyright Office has a set of laws pertaining exclusively to digital media. Digital media in this case has a number of definitions, but most commonly it refers to a digital audio copied recording that is, digitally recorded music or sound. If a person is caught using a copyrighted work before it enters the public domain, he is subject to injunction, fines and possibly jail time depending on the severity of the infringement. Under provisions of copyright law, a person who is not the legal owner of a piece of digital media is prohibited from copying or sharing that media. It is also illegal to import, manufacture or distribute any device that allows others to copy digital media for purposes of distribution. Persons seeking to use copyrighted material must be approved by the legal owner before proceeding with copying.
