Search Engine for videos Copyright Issue

Discussion in 'Legal Issues' started by mrweb, Dec 11, 2019.

    Hello,

    I'm developing a meta search engine for videos. I'm using YouTube and Dailymotion APIs, and I will embed the result videos and play them in my search page.

    I'm worried about having copyrighted materials within the search result, I don't have a way to tell if the video is copyrighted or no. I will write that the video is from YouTube or Dailymotion.

    Will I be in troubles if the result contained a copyrighted videos?

    Thank you.

    More explanation as I could not edit the previous post.

    What if someone uploaded a movie or song to YouTube which he does not have a licence for it and someone used my search engine and played that movie or a song on my website, will I have a problem for such a scenario ?
    P.S: My search engine will use YouTube API

    I am not 100% sure about this, but I think DMCA is about "storing" copyright files on your server. Since you are not storing them, simply embedding them from youtube etc, you will probably be fine.
    But kindly ask a lawyer about this, they can tell better.

    Yeah I think embedding videos has no copyright problem.
