[OSM-legal-talk] YouTube videos

Hi all,

Has anyone ever looked into the legal aspects of using YouTube videos to derive information from? Do any general rules apply? 

An example of a potentially useful video would be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oH99jVtb1eg&feature=youtu.be - I see that the Standard YouTube License is applied to this video, the salient part of those terms (to my mind) being 'You shall not copy, reproduce, distribute, transmit, broadcast, display, sell, license, or otherwise exploit any Content for any other purposes without the prior written consent of YouTube or the respective licensors of the Content.’ 

See the full terms here: https://www.youtube.com/static?template=terms 

Note that YouTube users can also choose a CC-BY license - which should be compatible with ODbL. But the default is the Standard YouTube License outlined above.

Thanks -
