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?

thanks.

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
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.

More not licensed by the copyright holder of the lyrics and music for public broadcast than by the original artist.

A recording by the original artist would have its own copyright as well as the above, as would the group that you are filming.

I have put lots of my friends bands videos up without problems - they play covers under the venues licensing I believe, and there are thousands if not millions of videos around on Youtube and Facebook etc you only have to look at everybody and their pet dog filming with their phones these days
