Legal Question in Intellectual Property in New Jersey
Am I allowed to post a movie on YouTube? I asked the company and they didn't say no. They said posting it isn't considered using it for commercial use but they said I should ask lawyer for further questions.

If the movie is copyrighted, you need the permission of the copyright owner in order to make any copies except under special circumstances that don't apply here. Commericial use is not the standard. If by "the company" you mean the copyright owner, get the permission in writing and be sure that it states what you are permitted to do.
