Good day, this is my first post, but hopefully I can get some good advice here.
I am involved in an online wrestling e-fed and one of my responsibilities is creating a weekly show. Part of my show is taping wrestling matches from Smackdown vs. Raw 2007 onto DVD, changing the format to an .avi format and then posting the match onto Youtube, where I can further post the link onto the e-fed website for all to see.
I've been trying to find a more expedient way to do it, when I was informed by a techy-friend (one whose opinion I respect) from California that it is illegal to copy Playstation 2 games and post them onto youtube. He states that in the US, the graphics are copywritten (copywrited?). Does the same rule apply in Canada? Is it truly a rule, or is he possibly mistaken?
Any and all assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Please post on the board so others can enjoy your questions and answers. Yes. Your friend is correct under Canadian and US laws. You could try to cure the problem by obtaining a license or permission to do what you wish. Good luck.
