I'm creating an animation/still image: Think kids watching TV with their babysitter.
She is showing them Spiderman1.
I grabbed the trailer and displayed it on the screen and when I play it back, it looks great, sounds great, though I tilted the screen enough so you can hardly see anything.
It does light up their faces with explosions etc. which is really great.

This is for a book I'm writing, so I wont be selling the video or image, but it is promotional material.
Am i stepping on Columbia's or Sony's toes?

Further, let's say it infringes on their copyright. I don't really want to do that. If I create a spiderman model and show him swinging across a cityscape that I animate, is that still infringment?

Thanks!

I googled about copyrighted material and found this Baylor University page that will help you decide.

You can never be certain when copyright issues may pop up so generally if you don't absolutely have to use copyright material don't use it.

YouTube for example may report a copyright claim when uploading a video if it detects a clip from a commercial movie like Spiderman. Also, the more successful something becomes it will attract more scrutiny over any copyright material that may be included, especially if you are gaining financially from it. If it is non-commercial then likely there won't be any comeback.

Thank you both, very helpful. I guess I'll just remove it. Pity.

Sounds like fair use to me. Here are some helpful video to explain fair use of video content on youtube. The laws will also apply to your work:



I hope this helps.

Those videos are great examples of why you should never get your legal advice from YouTube
