Jump to: navigation, search

A video mashup (also written as video mash-up) combines multiple pre-existing video sources with no discernible relation with each other into a unified video. These are derivative works as defined by the United States Copyright Act 17 U.S.C. § 101, and as such, may find protection from copyright claims under the doctrine of fair use. [1] Examples of mashup videos include movie trailer remixes, vids, YouTube Poop, and supercuts.[2]
