    Youtube screenshot copyright?

    Hi there,

    My question is, if I take a screenshot of a YouTube video and use it on my own website, is that legal?

    Waiting for your valuable answers!

    I don't think so. Whatever you take from the video have clear consent and permission from the publisher. Otherwise, you will be sued for it. The Video owner can file a DMCA notice against you and your website get suspended. Better contact the video creator and tell them what you want to use. It is the safest way to do things online.

    I agree with @vishwa and you can be reported if the owner of those images know you get from them.
    The best way is create images by yourself or using images from free sources.

    Totally depends on your intended purpose of use. If you are just using it for your benefit and not the video creators benefit, you are 100% in violation of copyright.

    If you are using a thumbnail image and linking it to the video, that could fall under fair use. You would need to consult a lawyer on that though.
