    Very good educational video on the fair use of copyrighted video. I never knew any of that stuff. I don’t think any of these methods would apply to marketers as they would be using it for commercial purposes, so submitting a copyrighted video to a commercial site like Adwido is like presenting evidence against yourself for copyright infringement.

    Great video. I was wondering if I could do something like that for video sites like adwido.com, which are commercial in nature and your video cleared it up.

    Yes, making videos for commercial sites complicates it, but fair use still applies. A number of the remakes on YouTube are ad supported.
