What is copyright?

Copyright is a form of protection provided for original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, graphic and audiovisual creations. “Copyright” literally means the right to copy, but has come to mean that body of exclusive rights granted by law to copyright owners for protection of their work.

"Copyright protection" means that a copyright owner can control certain uses of their work. Most importantly, this protection gives the copyright owner the right to control the copying, adaptation and transmission of the content. Uploading and sharing content via the Internet implicates many of a copyright owner’s exclusive rights. The exclusive nature of copyright means that only the owner can decide who engages in these activities with respect to their content.

There are limitations to copyright. It does not generally protect ideas or facts. In addition, there are some uses of copyright-protected materials that are authorised by law. This means, for example, that the copyright owner’s permission is not required to use their work in a video. The precise nature of these exceptions to copyright protection depends on the national copyright law that applies. In the USA, the most important exception is the “fair use”. In the UK, there are “fair-dealing” exceptions for particular uses such as criticism and review or reporting the news. In Brazil, the exceptions are itemised and specific and include quotes with attribution or short excerpts for personal use.

What is copyright infringement?

Copyright infringement occurs when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner.

Hurravideo respects the rights of copyright holders and publishers, requiring all users to confirm that they own the copyright or have permission from the copyright holder to upload content. Posting copyright-infringing content can lead to the removal of your videos and, possibly, monetary damages if a copyright owner decides to take legal action (this is serious, you can get sued!). Repeat infringers’ accounts will be closed. These users are permanently prohibited from using Hurravideo.

Hurravideo hopes that you will help us protect the rights of artists and creators and work with us to keep our community a creative, legal and positive experience for everyone.

How do I avoid copyright infringement?

The way to ensure that your video doesn’t infringe someone else’s copyright is to use your skills and imagination to create something completely original. It could be as simple as taping some of your friends messing around and as complicated as filming your own short film with a script, actors and the whole works. If it’s all yours, you never have to worry about the copyright because you own it! Make sure that you follow the other guidelines in the Terms of Use, too.

Make sure that all components of your video are your original creation, even the audio portion. For example, if you use an audio track of a sound recording owned by a record label without that record label’s permission, your video may be infringing the copyrights of others and may be subject to removal. Hurravideo offers a library of authorised music to liven up your video. Below are some guidelines to help you determine whether your video may infringe someone else’s copyright.

  • If you taped it from cable, videotaped your TV screen or downloaded it from some other website, it may still be copyright infringement and requires the copyright owner’s permission to distribute or can only be used within the limits of legal exceptions to copyright.
  • If you give credit to the owner/author/songwriter, it may still be copyright infringement.
  • Even if you are not selling the video for money, it may still be copyright infringement.
  • Even if similar videos appear on our site, it may still be copyright infringement.
  • Even if the video contains a copyright notice, it may still be copyright infringement.
  • If you created a video made of short clips of copyrighted content, even though you edited it together, it may still be copyright infringement.
