How could I be able to post video on Instagram with copyrighted music?
I had a video stripped of the audio after posting to YouTube, so, after that experience I’ve never attempted using copyrighted music on Instagram, only stock music. That being said, I do know someone who posted a short clip on Instagram using overlaid, high-quality copyrighted music, and he had the audio stripped from the video. They didn’t take down the video, since that part was original content, they only removed the audio. It comes down to the quality of the audio.If it’s just music playing in the background and not high quality, you can get away with it. But if you are actually overlaying high-quality copyrighted audio onto your videos, it won’t work unless you have special permission to use it. And if it’s some big artist or big popular track of today, there’s no way you are getting permission to use it.
Is reposting an image or video on Instagram copyright infringement?
Sharing content from other people on social media is far from new. We all do it all the time. However, there are some legal considerations you should take time to think about.And, with Instagram, there are additional considerations because the platform itself doesn’t support sharing content. So, before you start (or keep) regramming to Instagram, take a look at these legal issues to protect yourself and your business.First and foremost, you must remember that the user who shared the original post retains all copyrights to the image you plan to share. So, you MUST always give attribution to the original user.Using an app like Regram or Repost will allow you to @ mention the original user and share their original post caption on your share. But, more importantly, these apps include a watermark on the image you share with the original user’s Instagram username. This is ideal because it guarantees that the original user is given full attribution for their content.So there’s two kinds of consent when it comes to getting consent from using about using their image: there’s implied consent and express consent.If you have asked your audience, customers, and followers to tag your business in their photos via @ mentions or tags or hashtags) and they did this on their public Instagram profile, then they have essentially provided you with implied consent to use their content.But what happens if there is no implied consent? In this case, to protect yourself legally, you must get the user’s express consent to regram the content.You can comment on their post letting them know that you want to share their photo with your audience. Then you can ask if you can have their permission to repost it. You can also send the user a Direct Message asking the same thing. Once they give you response in writing, giving you permission to repost the picture, then you’d be allowed to repost the picture. If they don’t respond, don’t use it. Asking is not enough. You need actual consent.I am answering from the perspective of an intellectual property lawyer who has worked with creative artists and entrepreneurs to protect their intellectual property.

If I post the content of a TV channel on Instagram, is it a copyright strike?
It can be if the rightsholder discovers it and decides it infringes on their rights. At that point, they file a DMCA notice with the hosting service (in this case Instagram) who will take action, lest they be implicated as complacent in your endeavors. You could argue fair use, but that’s a can of worms you probably don’t want to open if you’re asking a question like this on Quora.I’m not trying to be dismissive or say you’re incapable of making anything that falls under fair use. The problem is your perspective, not the EULA. If you’re so concerned about using other people’s content, you’re likely not putting enough effort into your own work.
Is it copyright infringement to post screenshots of TV shows on Instagram?
Unless you have the permission from the owner, it sure is. The law in the UK expressly provides for not just a whole screenshot, but parts of a screen shot.Section 17(4) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 says:Copying in relation to a film includes making a photograph of the whole or any substantial part of any image forming part of the film.So that means you could just take part of the screen in your screen, publish it anywhere (not just Instagram) without consent of the copyright owner, and still get pinned for copyright infringement.When you read section 17 with section 16 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 that’s what it says.Whether the copyright owner is prepared to let it slide is another matter. they could do so by way of (say) waiver of their rights, estoppel by convention, acquiescence, making an election.
Can I legally post a 2-3 minute clip from any movie or TV series on Facebook?
Yes, you can legally; just as it can be removed legally. Oh, and if you paid for it.Technically yes, in actuality; laws regarding copyright are blurred as they change slightly between nations and are used differently between services. But in general; you will find that you are able to upload a few minutes, or maybe a bit more than that to any website. The issue comes with if the company and / or people who own that content, wish for you to use the video in such way.Copyright states that the legal entity that created the original content, be it a single person; group or corporation; they have full legal control over said video. Just like you do of any pictures you take, given you took them legally.If you take a video or picture; then someone else gets a hold of it and you do not wish them to have it; they do not listen, under copyright you have a legal right to prosecute them for infringing the rules of copyright. It’s a bit weird.Back to your point; as long as you do not attempt to monetize; earn money by placing ads on the video and it is short like you intend; usually a few minutes will be fine. Otherwise, it’ll likely be demonetized and can even be taken down with penalties occurring for your account.TL;DR - Often yes you can if you do not attempt to profit off someone else;’s work.
