How does copyright apply to a movie review video?

  • May be considered fair use (or fair dealing) to use a very short movie clip to support commentary about the plot or characters.
  • Allows a review to add as many pieces of footage from the movie if it’s listed as a movie review.
  • Video footage may be used as long as the sound is disabled.
  • Prevents any footage from being shown without written consent from the actors who have dialogue.
