I'am not sure if i'am on the right place here, I have a question on a legal issue.


I regulary on a humoristic website where everybody can put some picture or small video.
I have the wish to create an equivalent website center on sport. Would it be legal to use small video of sport game?


I don't beleive it is but well they do it so I wonder.

Generally, no. But international copyright is distinct from U.S. copyright, so the answer will always be murky. U.S. major leagues are copyright enforcers that think nothing of stomping on any use of their material. High school sports? That will vary.

What your question addresses is the concept of "fair use." Humor and satire get a broader definition than other uses. Otherwise, demagogues and fascists would control the media (more than they already do). However, it is a constant battle, and there are casualties.

Thanks for your answear.
Well on this website the video don't show all the events, juste the best or amazing moment. So I was thinking that maybe it's possible to do it, even if i'am pretty sure it's illegal.


What surprise me the most is that the website/appl is pretty famous.


Maybe sport organization allow it to get some publicity.
