Hello!

I would like to uplaod old WWII movies to youtube for my customers to watch whenever they choose to for free. They are old classics like "12 O'clock High". Has anyone done this before? I am also interested in translating books to DVD for leisurely listening and sales. Is it legal?

Thanks!

Thank you Chad. I will upload the movies and remove them if told to do so. I don't recon WWII books would be public domain, so I will have to contact the authors'.

Hi Stuart.

I'm a bit late responding to this, but want to point out some options for you to consider on how you share these videos.  I work with digital content and so I'm a bit of a stickler for being sure you protect yourself.  My response may create new questions for you to consider, but I'd rather you have some additional insights.

There are three settings YouTube as to how a user can view your videos, Public, Unlisted, Private.  You may want to consider using 'Unlisted'.  This allows you to share the videos only with people whom have the link you provide for that video.  If this is for customers and you're trying to allow a bit of exclusivity for viewing, that will do it.

On the downside of this approach, you don't want to appear as though you're selling access to these videos when you don't own the rights and 'access' to the videos by a paying customer could create some blurry lines.  Even if that video is just added value as a friendly gift for your customers.

If it was me, I wouldn't be doing it.  If I don't own the rights, or permissions, I don't want to connect it to me or my customers.

If you do decide to list them anyway, be sure in your video listing that you specify you do not own the materials and are providing it for entertainment purposes only.  A bit of a disclaimer like that won't solve problems, but doesn't hurt to show you're not selling these videos.

Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to me if I can help clarify more.

Thanks Greg, 

I have added videos to my website. Please follow the link. There are some videos that are not to be found on YouTube, so I was going to try and transfer them from VHS to youtube if I find them.

I thought if I didn't charge for them I may be safe. I have tried contacting one of the production companies, but I never heard back from them.

Hi Stuart.

I see what you're doing.  By providing it as a resource like this, you may okay aside from YouTube's guidelines that Chad pointed out earlier.

Another idea to consider in how to better leverage this free content, would be to add a blog to your store.  Then you could blog about these videos with the link to the YouTube page.  Then you're getting better SEO value for your site and providing the same free resource.

Thanks Greg,

My webstore provides a blog, just not sure how to use it yet. It seems pretty basic though.

If you need any tips on launching the blog, let me know. It is pretty straightforward on the platform you use, just need to use best practices and you'll see benefits.

I started one using wordpress. Still trying to figure it out.

Email me at greg@azolastore.com and I can help you figure it out.

Thanks! I'll be in touch soon.
