Ups. I've posted a link to a utube video

Sorry for breaking the law. I feel guilty for posting a youtube link. :upside_down_face: –– Community guidelines read:

Post Only Your Own Stuff

You may not post anything digital that belongs to someone else without permission. You may not post descriptions of, links to, or methods for stealing someone’s intellectual property (software, video, audio, images), or for breaking any other law.

I think you’re good - I think this only means posting for download. Like, don’t post entire music files, or videos, or a pdf of a copyrighted book.

Posting links to anything is pretty much fair game and I’m pretty sure YouTube content creators want you to link to their stuff, embed their videos, etc.

In practice I agree. I was just mocking the §§.
For instance, a link to a competitor is not stealing anything. The infringement begins if we develop a copycat.

Aha! Well taken : ) - much of that is boilerplate from Discourse.
