Does the site have permission?

Date : February 25, 2007

Category : Tutorials / creation problems

Question :

My question is, does the site have permission to use Balto footage in fanvideos? What I mean is did Steet ask Universal or Amblimation permission to let fans make videos with their animation? I'm asking this because decrypting a disk without permission is illegal. It's not that I want to cause trouble it's just my parents won't buy me a decrypter program if the site doesn't have permission. Please someone who knows for a FACT answer me. I don't want any false information.

This question has been solved.

As long as you have something saying that those characters
belong to Universal, and they weren't created by you, and
you're not making any money off it, there shouldn't be a

True, doing this is on the edge of legality, and for a long
time I didn't want a video section on the site. But, you'll
notice that the site only gives links, the videos are hosted
elsewhere...So, it's the other sites' responsability if they
accepted them, not mine.

And, as Cat said,
Universal doesn't care much, if they did I would already
have had messages from them. Unfortunately they just don't
care much from Balto at all.

I understood the first two comments thank you....

Maya---) To be able to rip the disk you've got to unprotect the Dvd.

Catwhohas14tails is right because probably all of the people
on the site probably didn't need to ask permission to make
fan videos of Universal Studios' animation.

Well tell your parents that companies like Universal
encourage fandom, so it wouldn't matter anyway.
