Can We Use YouTube Clips for EAP Nonprofit?
What about fair use? Your use sounds transformative -- you're commenting on the clip -- so that would be helpful for a fair use defense. On the other hand, the clips are much longer than what's usually excused (under a minute). Look at the four factors and see what you think, or better yet, check with a lawyer if that's possible. Remember, claiming this defense is not enough to stop a lawsuit. If the other side disagrees with you, only a judge or arbitrator can determine whether it's a fair use.
