Legal Question

Asked on: 9/30/09, 8:14 pm

I am compiling a movie trailer for a friend and need some stock video. What are the laws regarding using clips from youtube if they do not explicitly say copyrighted. I am assuming the network content is off limits but I am unsure about personal video or tutorial video, like ehow.com content.

Regards,

Derek
