What must one do to be “legal” when posting a video on YouTube when playing a harp rendition of a popular song (which is copyrighted)? Perhaps it is your own arrangement, or perhaps you are playing an arrangement written by someone else (which may also be copyrighted).
When I look it up on the internet, it seems like it’s very complicated to get a sync license for doing a video. Yet one can find any number of videos from cute kids to recitals to more polished renditions. Do all these people just upload and hope for the best?
My reason for asking is to provide a few videos for family/friends who would not be able to visit to see a performance in person.
