This is my first post, ive tried to do a search but not had any luck. Hopefully im in the right place to have a few questions answered
I am producing an independent documentary and there are thousands of clips on youtube that id like to consider using. Some by news channels such as CBS and some by independent people, and some independent people aggregating other content.
I plan so sell my documentary. My question is: Can I use any of this footage and not be breaking copyright laws? I will reference the source, can it be used under a fair usage policy?
Any help offered is greatly appreciated.
