Unhappy Copyright Questions

1 I want to promote LIVESTREAM BIG shows on my site. Purpose: a) To promote my site, b) to promote LIVESTREAM's shows, C) to create a private (or public) membership on my site based on my own broadcasts of local (Port Townsend) events.



2 How can I rebroadcast the Olympics live, through my channel for special events in www.PortTownsendPeeps.com?

Much looking forward to your kind, knowledgeable, input...

Always love, light and laughter;
Leticia : )

If the video or movie is protected under copyright laws, it is a violation of both our Terms of Use and a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Your channel and account will be locked due to this infringement.

Please review our Terms of Service should you have additional questions: http://www.livestream.com/terms/generalterms

Default I don't think you own the copyright on Olympics

I would think it would be an infringement on copyright to rebroadcast the Olympics. Networks pay millions for the rights to broadcast such events and hold the rights for future broadcasts. You might want to find another method to promote your site aside from this method that could end up costing you a lawsuit. I believe Livestream makes it very clear that we are not to broadcast material that we do NOT hold the copyright on. If we abuse this simple request they will end up removing the free accounts to make sure they are not placed in a position of liability themselves.

Unhappy Questions about Copyrighted Content

Short and simple. Are openings to games legal content for a stream?

I meant the opening videos shown in games, to be played while someone is not broadcasting. If that was legal or not. not games in general. The openng videos in games ripped and played while someone is not broadcasting...

Sorry I dont know how to say that correctly. but is it legal?

Unhappy How do I know about copyright?

A few months back, I had my channel set up to stream my gaming commentaries, with lots of public domain content running when I'm offline. However, I was denied verification for this because of copyright issues. I was told that it's perfectly fine to stream games, but public domain video is not allowed because I don't specifically own the copyright on the content.

Has this policy been updated to something that makes more sense? I searched the forums and see users advocating content from Archive.org, which is what I was denied verification for.

Hi NayusDante,

Content in the Public Domain is perfectly acceptable. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to determine which content is part of the Public Domain and which is not. As a precaution, our Verification Team may decline a channel application because of this.

Currently, I see that your channel currently contains zero content. I'd recommend adding some original content / recordings and re-applying.
