Whether Fox can do that and legally show the clip in an episode is a matter for the experts to argue

No, they used it for commercial gain, and that's totally illegal. Sue the shit out of them.

If you write a dissertation in pen, does the pen company own the rights to your work?

All OP has to do is call it Art. Then he can sue them.

He does not have to own the rights to Double Dribble. His use of the game and system as props in his video about Double Dribble exploits would 100% be considered transformative fair use.

His problem would be if Fox claimed the same thing about his video. That would be a bit more difficult to prove as they used his video work in it's entirety within their video work. It would be interesting to see if a court thinks that their audio commentary added enough to be transformative and qualify as fair use.

Not necessarily, if it's a short enough clip then it might be fair use.

Not the first time Family Guy stole content unfairly. The guy who did the Peanut Butter Jelly meme video was approached by NBC for including a joke about it on one of their shows. Obviously he really couldn't claim credit since it wasn't his gif and wasn't his song, but it was clear NBC didn't want to piss anyone off and thanked him in the credits anyway. When Family Guy took it, there was no diligence, there was no thanks, nothing. Totally classless.

Not really, getting as far as the court room would be a long and difficult procedure.

Fox would play around with the concept of him not owning the footage that it belongs directly to the video game developer Konami who if they got involved would probably come down equally heavily on both parties but Fox could make amends where as the youtuber probably couldn't.

Neither Konami nor Fox wants that publicity. Konami, at least, relies on amateur video game reviewers and Fox wouldn't want to take the chance of Konami backing the youtuber. Which if Konami did would give them a crazy amount of fandom support and we would buy their shitty rereleases forever, oh wait we will anyway.

The irony is this: YouTube uploader would have probably loved to have had his video been promoted on the show had they asked; now that they stole it why be satisfied with the hits on your channel?

They should have their automated process take timestamps into account. Like, if a video has been online for a few years before your content existed, maybe flag it for manual review instead.

That would require hard work and time and money and as far as I have seen Google is only interested in making as much as they can off the platform.

Now that they deprived the original owner of their property for their own use, I think you don't need the quotes anymore.

Was that really a glitch? I played a lot of DD back in the day and it seems like each team had a different spot that would almost guarantee a 3-point shot.

We had a lot of high scoring games that really amounted to who lost control of the ball the most.

Youtube blames its robots.

I find it hard to believe a robot that can track all of the worlds videos can't use a time stamp.
