I have a youtube channel that I am starting. I know its difficult and illegal to post real artist work who copyright their music, onto your videos.. But for example if I get a song cover of Frank Ocean IVY sung by another person and used that cover song in my video instead, is that legal or acceptable?
Aina: You could do that, but it's not right unless you have the person's permission. Would you like it if I took your videos and claim them as my own?
Ask for permission first, and then you can decide if you want to use it.
You'd have to ask for permission from whoever is singing the cover.
If you get permission from them. But YouTube might think it is infringing copyright and delete the video.
