Legalities of using short TV clips in your web series

(Georginna Feyst) #1

Hello All,
First time filmmaker here. We’re starting with releasing our web series on Youtube. I’m having trouble finding consistent information on the legalities of using short TV clips in our web series. Some people say you can use these clips if their less than 5 seconds, some say 20 seconds, etc.

Do any of your experienced producers out there know what the restrictions are? Also, does anyone links can answer legal/copyright questions similar to this in the future?

Thanks so much guys!
Have a great day :smiley:
