Zetec is wrong.

You may embed ANY video which has embedding enabled using the Youtube functionality.

The uploader is the only person who may have breached copyright.

Note:

If it is an unauthorised upload, then it may disappear at any point in the future.

Some record labels set their video embeds to redirect to play on the Youtube website ONLY.

There is no distinction between the sort of video and the right to embed it.

>So the people stalking me with bad votes can go away.

Maybe people are giving you negative votes because you say things that don't make any sense. For example:
"You buy a music DVD from a shop.
You can't just go around embedding it in websites!"

That is not what the question is about. If someone  uploads music without permission, they are indeed violating the law and are subject to penalties. But, the question was is some other person violating any laws if they embed that YouTube video on there own site. And the answer is "no".  The original uploader has not only violated the law, they have also lied to YouTube and claimed permission. There is no way (under current laws) to hold another user liable for the sins of the original uploader.

you won't violate any laws - BUT, you should be aware that if you have adsense enabled on your website, they require any video you embed to be infringement free, so if you're embedding music vids make sure it's the legit version.

"There is no distinction between the sort of video and the right to embed it."

that is correct, and may be why the question was misunderstood. the question is therefore saying "i know it's ok to embed youtube videos, but is it ok to embed music videos?" they answered it themselves. when does a non-music video become a music video?

Hey there,

Dave is right in his description. Hosting a video that has content which is not your own violates our Terms of Service.

If the video owner allows embedding of their video, they are essentially acknowledging that people will be embedding their video. Embedding that video does not violate our TOS.

Please take note of Colette's points about Adsense, too.

Thanks! Kendall

"You buy a music DVD from a shop.You can't just go around embedding it in websites!"

That is not what the question is about.

i think that's why he said he read it "as is". as in the second part of the question being separate from the first part. i can see both sides, and the question ITSELF didn't make much sense.
