Hi, simple question. If I’m filming a concert (with permission) and they play a cover song, where do I stand with copyright if I put this video on YouTube?
it’s more to do with the copyright of the original material. So the band can play cover songs, but if I broadcast it on YouTube, I’m guessing I’m not covered by the original artist.simple answer . you should be ok (most other people attending will), but if you are doing the video for the band payed or unpaid , you should get permission to put the video out on social media

Great links, thanks.It’s usually fine, YouTube have created a system to monetise the video if they detect copyrighted material, a claim is put against the video and any cash from ads goes to the copyright holder, so if they decide to do this, you will have adverts usually at the start of your video . or they can mute/ take it down.
Have a read
Are you familiar with the phrase If in doubt, don't do it ?
Presumably they have bought a licence for live performance, rather than recording and distribution?It doesn't seem fair as the sound is one part of the video and the events have licensed that to perform already.
In some cases, the license is also for recording and distribution, TV and online. How does that get passed along within YouTube do you know? It's only just become important to me so trying to find out.Presumably they have bought a licence for live performance, rather than recording and distribution?
That's how licences work. You pay according to the amount of use you want.
