I have to initially thank MUOTechGuy for helping me learn how to rephrase my questions so that they are not misinterpreted, so thanks MUOTechGuy for the great website as well as your comments that have taught me to rephrase my questions!
So… as the post asks:
What’s the least expensive and easiest way technically that I can legally extract small snippets of movie clips of copyrighted material and share them with friends, family, and students ?
I’m hoping to learn how to do this technically, and also very importantly how to do so without breaking copyright law, without infringing on intellectual property, without ‘ripping anybody off’, and without breaking any other laws or moral principals that would invite justifiable criticism. Tips?
