Re: Cartoons with and without copyright troubles
[In reply to]
Warner Bros. currently owns their own library of classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons; plus the entire MGM cartoon library from 1934 to 1967. They also own many of the classic Hanna-Barbera TV cartoons.
Unless a particular cartoon is in the public domain because of human error (i.e. letting the copyright lapse without renewing it.; then you are setting yourself up to be sued every time you upload one of the aforementioned cartoons to your YT channel.
Other YT members who have made similar uploads manage to stay under the radar by cleverly altering the title of the cartoon just enough to escape detection by one of YT's random title-searches.
