I know, I'm a law student - But I figured I'd ask you guys...

Can I post a video of President Obama from a white house video in my own youtube video?

I'd be pretty surprised if you couldn't. What kind of law are you worried about violating?

::shrug:: i don't want them to tell me to take down the video....

Although if u look at it - it says "public domain" and you can download it.

Being able to download something doesn't mean much. Stating "public domain" probably does, though!

2011 Jewish American Heritage Month (95-96)

Consisting of 68% racial-phobic responses with correspondingly small amounts of Hardcore Zionism and Anti-Semitic Backlash, the seductive 2011 Youtube Comments Page adds hints of Federal Monetary Policy paranoia and a small head of anti-multicultural veils to the mess of uninformed multinational/American diatribes, and the florals of zealous anti-Obama and anti-Democrat shift into low register, with cassis, blackberry, and purple plum informing a thickly-rich, decadently sumptuous palate of pure, seething, ignorant rage at various socioeconomic and sociocultural factors. Here, too, there is a hidden source of energy that conveys lift to the finish and keeps the page from seeming at all over-ripe. Nor is there even a hint of reason in a finish of astonishing conflict between deliciously racist islamists and sumptuously racist anti-islamists — the comments provide for sheer length, with floral perfume hanging in all the way to a reverberating, bitter-sweet, multifaceted, let's-please-just-kill-off-the-entire-human-race finish.

This selection will ring changes on your palate for a decade, I predict, and will enter that select – though rapidly expanding – elite of Youtube comments pages that need not fear comparison with any of the world’s bafflingly horrid ignorant sepulchers. (Samprimary, Internet Comments Pages Advocate 2011)

Just about anything created by an federal employee in the course of their job, unless it's specifically exempted, is public domain.

State government items vary, from state to state.

Saw this on Ben Smith's blog at Politico. Evidently Armoth is doing his part to improve Obama's re-election chances [Wink]
