If you were to do any of these things with it, the producers of said media could do nothing against you. (So if I were to take your footage and cut it up and insert it into my own footage in which I criticise your actions and such, there is nothing that Youtube would do for you......but I'm not a jerk, so that would never happen) You get the idea. The laws are complicated and for that reason, I do not even try to use them for my benefit.

Mind you, the chances that anyone is going to use fishing footage for any of the above-stated ways is HIGHLY unlikely.
Interesting so that's how they do it? The ones I'm talking about are just blatant copies of the whole video and reposting with no change.
