Is it legal to profit off NBA Footage such as creating highlight mixes and posting them on your youtube channel?


Is there not a certain length from each game that you are allowed to reproduce?

Been trying to find this out for a while.

Did you film it with your own camera? If not then technically it's illegal, but rarely pursued. All broadcasts have disclaimers stating that said broadcasts are not to be used without expressed written consent of the NBA.

Does it matter if you used your own camera if you were inside an NBA stadium by license granted from purchase of a ticket?

If you filmed it, you hold the copyright and can exploit it how you wish. On the other hand, if you want to use recorded music in the background of your mix, you need a license.

I never fully read my ticket holder agreement but it said something about forbidding the recording of any images and asserted that all images captured were property of the NBA.

How do you obtain an image at a game without stealing it?

Wow. Some responses finally :). Thanks guys.

Some follow up questions:

If I paid for League Pass and recorded it as a "screen capture"...

Does that count as me recording it or does the camera work have to be done by me?

Isn't there a rule that states you can use up to 2 minutes per game of footage for reporting?

I also been continuing to do my own research and found this:

Although users are encouraged to upload NBA video to YouTube, the NBA still has the option of removing material. The NBA will use YouTube's "Claim Your Content" screening system to identify and report videos that infringe on the NBA's copyrights. Instead of requesting that videos be taken down, however, the NBA will have the option of taking a cut of any advertising revenue generated by the clips.

Remember it and draw it at home later? (Omitting all copyrighted logos and team names?)
