I would like to make a movie on youtube that has a song from the dark knight:Just because you recreate a song doesn't mean the liscense isn't still in effect. It's the same exact song, so you would still be stealing. Doesn't make a difference. Now if you make a remix of the song (if the license allows for it), it won't be stealing. But regardless, the chances of the people caring about one person out of thousands who use the song isn't going to get you into a court case. Just use the song.
Why So Serious
unfortunetly, that song is copyrighted.
If possible, could anyone maybe make a recreation of that song?
I would appriciate it.
While you are right about the recreation not nullifying the copyright, you are wrong about the stealing part.
It's not stealing unless you don't give credit, or claim credit for another artists work... Or if you are making money off whatever you used the song in. Youtube is acting dictatorship right now, seeing as very very few people actually make money from uploading to youtube, a lot of the videos with their audio pulled down "due to copyright" is uncalled for.
Which is a lot of the reason a lot of videos now have a very noticeable section in their description saying who owns whatever song they used.
Really, if you were to purchase a CD, soundtrack, whatever, you own the right to use whatever is on that disc for personal use. There is a thin line there between personal and commercial, but I really don't think simply posting a song with a video you made on youtube classifies as commercial, you aren't redistributing it (As you're not supposed to be able to download from youtube, yes, I know people can and do), and you are not reselling it.
Although at the rate people are freaking about copyright this, copyright that, pretty soon youtube will go out of business, along with any other video streaming hub... As 90% (Guesstimation) of the content on those sites is from movies, musicians CDs, games... All of which are copyrighted in one form or another.
Just use the song, the worst they can do is ask you take it down.
