I ran into a specialist in video production industry that told me that people who upload trek clips on youtube could be sued.  And that fair use doesn’t necessarily protect you, you could still be sued and they could let the court decide then. 


 


Anybody had experience with this matter or similar?  I wanted to use some trek clips for educational/entertainment purposes and now I have doubts.  And I did some light research on fair use and it kind of supports that view.


 


Would you be better off simply asking for permission to use for educational/entertainment and not-for-profit?  Anyone had experience doing so?
