Post IMPORTANT: Do not post videos w/o permission of creator
I just checked this forum to find what I believe to be copyrighted materials. Although I'm waiting to hear from the person who posted them to determine what exactly happened, I just want to make it clear that under no circumstances are people allowed to post material they do not own the rights to or have permission from the owner of those rights to post.

Please, please, do not do that. We may have to take action like banning or preventing from uploading future videos. If we get sued for copyright infringement that's the end of chessvideos.tv, so don't ruin it for everyone else.

Hello Josh, would a small donation per month help out with the site as it is now my favorite and is a really cool idea. This is better than ICC. I'm a fan for life and will additionally contribute some great videos.

if the book is so OLD to be public domain, then no. (usually 50-70+ years old, but varies). Spielmann's Art of Sacrifice for example was published 75 years ago.....

if the book is not public domain, it may or may not be a violation:
if you read the book verbatim like a story book, that's probably a violation.

if the video has transformative value, then it's probably ok. so long as a good portion of the analysis and commentary is original, it's not a violation of US copyright law.

also see here:
viewtopic.php?p=33514#p33514

this is not legal advice, just a forum post.
