I think you need to have permission for that from the company.Read terms and conditions on the DVD case.

Illegal.
Reason: You are republishing the original word without permission from the owner.

Ofcourse, Copyright Laws do allow some exceptions but what you want to do with those clips will not allow you to claim those exceptions.

Those people are doing it illegally. And that 'you are doing free publicity/advertising for them' is no excuse to offend.

well technically speaking i guess they would be illegal....cos the eula allows u to use the product but not modify it rite...

dude take my advise: the thing is illegal but no one give a **** these days so do what ever you want to.

Who cares, just search any thing for e.g. "friends" and you will see some hundreds of videos.
As long as the content is not controversial, you can relax.
They ain't gonna catch you, worst only your user id might get banned, but thats a rare case. :rolleyes:
So just relax and upload the damn videos and let us see. :p
