    Default Video Copyright Issues

    Hi all,

    New poster here. I'm currently doing a web based project which involves using youtube videos from popular shows and looking into the possible copyright issues before it goes online.

    I cant give too much away (it is a unique concept) but basically i'm using clips of popular TV shows straight from YouTube (I am not downloading or hosting the videos, they are being played direct from YouTube servers using their Player API). I am presenting the videos in a way which makes them easier to find for the fans of a particular show. As I am not directly downloading/hosting/editing the videos, but simply allowing other users to view videos via my site will there be any issues with copyrights?

    I am based in the UK and the end project will be free-use (you will not have to pay to use) and so I cannot afford insurance for the site.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Some form of search engine for third party videos? It's not really any different than what YouTube does, is it, other than the algorithm?

    We're not going to be able to tell you if there are any intricacies of U.K. law you need to watch out for. I know your privacy and consumer laws are stronger than those in the U.S.
