Yo I'm determined to find a scene in this movie and turn it into a meme! I'll use a part of the movie and change it a little so its funny.
I'm not sure you want to do that quite yet... you should check and see if the movie is protected by Creative Commons
What is that? Will it prevent me from making the best memes ever?
Well, it depends on the terms the creator decided to put on the movie for anyone who wants to use a scene in the movie
Since most things are protected by copyright, there should be a way to use others photos or videos without getting sued. That's where Creative Commons comes in. It allows the creator of the photo or video to apply certain terms the user of that photo or vid has to follow.
For example, I could open up my picture to you BUT you have to give me credit for the photo somewhere when you are using it otherwise you have to ask for permission or get sued possibly.
You must give the creator credit for any scene in this movie or you can ask the creator for permission not to give credit. if you dont give credit without permission, you will be sued.
Dang! I guess I'll have to give the movie directors credit when i make the meme... Thats not too bad now that i think about it.
Thanks for warning me about Creative Commons before I tried to meme a scene from the movie. I wouldve had to pay a fine for not giving credit to the creator
Yeah it would've cost you more for that one scene than it did for the movie ticket! Just remember to check a picture or video to see if it has any terms a user must follow if they want to use that picture.
Wait! I'm getting sued for other memes I've created earlier!
You didnt check the other pictures you used earlier to see if they were protected by Creative Commons did you?
