What would the fair use rules say about including a widely available web video in a podcast and then talking about it with a panel of folks? Would there be any issues in repackaging that original content in the context of the discussion afterwards to create a new video?

Anyone with guidance on that would be awesome.

  1. Better to get permission first regardless, and an entire duplication may have issues, but using pieces of music or a video for discussion are definitely fair use. I’m not a lawyer, just have trolled the internet for IP related discussions for years. =)

  4. I would think that if you are repackaging and redistributing (which is what you do when you make it available online) the content in its entirety, it would not fall under fair use guidelines. If it was only show locally without any kind of distribution possibility (including webcasting or video recording) for educational purposes, you might have a fair use leg to stand on.
