No, you cannot use the songs even with a disclaimer. YouTube will shut your video down once they find out, and they will. I had them shut one of mine down due to a copyright issue with BMI and the sound track I had on my video. But I had purchased lifetime unlimited rights to that music and more so once I showed YouTube that they released my video.My question is, would it be possible to use a song on a Youtube video with one of these songs from the record labels on it? The video would obviously not be for profit, merely for promotional purposes. Also, we would include the "We do not own the rights to this song, copyright is held by..." etc to the description, as well as links to the artists pages.
Would this be acceptable from a legal stand point do you think?
Thanks in advance
