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?

Best Answer:

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.

Other answer:

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.
