China already has all of my credit card numbers.  This is no big deal.

Boobs are going to be bouncing like never before. Oops, are my nipples showing through my shirt? Oh no, did my skirt ride up to my waist while I was dancing? Darn it, I did not realize that I was sitting cross-legged in a skirt when I reviewed and edited it before uploading.

I dont know anything about how paying "creators" works on these platforms, but it seems TikTok videos uses a lot of music and movie/tv audio clips to do what they do. Maybe rights owners haven't made a big deal so far because no one is getting paid, would think if money is coming in to play there is probably going to be copyright issues. Again, no idea, could be completely wrong, would like to know what someone with a bit more knowledge on this thinks.

Are you a spy?

If you aren't, then it's not a pro-tip.

Then it's just dumb, and you're double dumb for using a device that spies on you, by companies that actually do care about what you do, as opposed to some Chinese company, which gives a shiat about you.

Small portions of a creative work may be protected by fair use, as long as the usage is not of commercial nature.

If the music is not the main part of the use, but just the backdrop to a short clip, even though that is of commercial nature, the usage of the music as a back drop might be deemed fair use.

TikTok clips are fairly short, and almost always have the moving picture, not the music, as the main part.

I'm curious how a ruling would fall, maybe no-one has tested it, because they're worried it would be deemed fair use?

Beavis&Butthead are safe, because using parts of music to critique is fair use. :P

The problem is that this is susceptible to the Internet Pareto Principle: 90% of the money will go from thirsty losers to the upper 10% of attractive women.

How long before underage girls are caught getting naked for money?  Because it's the inevitable conclusion.

I was kind of thinking along the same lines in terms of length/duration of use, but then I thought of shows like Tosh.0 where he would sing a piece of lyrics or something and make it a point to say "that's all we can use before we have to pay so and so" and it was usually quite a bit shorter than the average tiktok.

I get what you're saying that the video itself is usually the main part, but there seems to be a whole bunch of people essentially just lip synching to that exact song. Plus there is of course the dance ones to a specific song. Thanks for the piece of insight though, seems like it may be a big gray area.

TikTok is Chinese, and they give less than a shiat about copyright issues.

Doesn't Tik Tok ban those accounts?

Maybe a "line in the sand" could be between when you dance, or lipsync to music, or when its just used for dramatic effect. In the latter cause, the music isn't the main part of the video, but the first two, as you noted, it obviously is.

They obviously care a lot about copyright issues, so obvious that it ought not to be explained.
