The second part of Street Legal: Legal Considerations for Videographers is presented. YouTube recently enacted an innovative approach to handling synchronization rights to copyrighted music. Rather than remove videographers' clips that contain unlicensed music, the site is pairing advertising for the music labels with the video clips. Videographers who would like the option of selling their video clips to stock footage agencies or who want to use the footage in an educational or documentary program should think twice before signing a work-made-for-hire clause. All the footage, even out-takes, becomes the property of the client. You can protect your rights when you, as the producer, subcontract to a freelance videographer by stating that the materials the freelancer provides you with are works-made-for-hire under copyright law. With some of the newer developments such as YouTube attaching ads to videos with copyrighted music and the Zoom music licensing program, videographers can pursue their creative ambitions without thinking of themselves as outlaws.
