According to the DMCA:
In the file-sharing context, downloading or uploading substantial parts of a copyrighted work without authority constitutes an infringement.
- What counts as “substantial”?
- Does that mean if I have an app that supplies 10 second segments of a VOD I am not violating DMCA guidelines?
- Furthermore, my app would just be providing users a very small segment of a VOD and it would be up to each user what they do with it.
