Copyrights

VIDESAUR PLT provides users with an online platform and social media website (the “Videsaur Platform”) and allows users to upload and share videos content to the Videsaur Platform. We take the rights of intellectual property owners very seriously and comply as a service provider with all applicable provisions of the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

As stated in our End User License Agreement and Terms of Service, Videsaur enforces its policy barring the upload of infringing material onto the Videsaur Platform. We respect the rights of copyright owners and we ask that you do the same.

What is copyright?

Copyright is the right of an author of a creative work to prevent others from using that work, including performing or displaying the work publicly, reproducing a work, distributing a work, or using it to create new works (a derivative work). We strongly encourage users of the Videsaur Platform to familiarize themselves with copyright law before uploading content on the Videsaur Platform. We offer the following links to copyright law resources for informational purposes only:

What types of materials are copyrighted?

Copyright can cover almost any creative expression, including photographs, images, videos, audio/visual creations, live streams, articles, and other works of authorship. If you did not create a work and do not have the consent of the copyright holder to publish or use it (e.g., upload it to the Videsaur Platform), your use of that work may be unauthorized and you may be subject to liability for copyright infringement.

 

What happens if I upload content to the Videsaur Platform for which I don’t own the copyright, have a license to use the work, or have consent of the copyright holder?

If we are notified that material you have uploaded to the Videsaur Platform infringes someone’s copyright, we will notify you and take down the content you posted. This is required by law. If you persist in uploading unauthorized content, we will, pursuant to our Repeat Infringer Policy, ban you from using the Videsaur Platform.

What about fair use?

The “fair use” doctrine is an affirmative defense to copyright infringement in the United States that allows the use of a work for certain limited purposes such as criticism, commentary, parody, news reporting, research, and teaching. Fair use is a complicated doctrine, and it is an open question whether a particular use of a copyrighted work constitutes fair use. You are responsible for the content you upload to the Videsaur Platform and may be liable for money damages if it is determined that you wrongly assumed that your use of certain content constituted “fair use”.

We offer the following links to various copyright law resources relating to the fair use doctrine for informational purposes only:

Further Information Regarding Copyright Infringement:

  • The extent to which content uploaded to the Videsaur Platform makes use of a copyrighted work may not matter: even the use of a small portion of a copyrighted work may cause you to be liable for copyright infringement.
  • A copyright notice (i.e., © or ℗) is generally not required for a work to be protected by copyright law.
  • Distributing content containing copyrighted material without the copyright owner’s permission may be a violation of copyright law even if you give the content away for free.
  • There is no exception for “private” copying in U.S. law. Even if you share a work with only a small group of your friends or family, you could still be liable for copyright infringement.
  • You can be liable for copyright infringement even if you give attribution to the owner or author of the copyrighted content.
  • Even if you used your creativity to create new content that contains another person’s copyrighted work, you may be liable for copyright infringement.
  • The only way that you can know for certain that content does not infringe anyone else’s copyright is if you created the entire work yourself without using anyone else’s copyrighted materials.

If you want to report content that you believe violates or infringes your copyright

Please fill out the Videsaur DMCA Copyright Infringement Notification form below. Note that a report alleging infringement or violation of legal rights must come from the rights owner or someone authorized to report on their behalf (e.g. attorney, agent). If you are not the rights owner or their authorized representative, we will not be able to process your report.
