Licensing a video clip from YouTube
I want to use a portion of a video that CBS has posted on YouTube. They tell me that in addition to the licensing fee I need to pay a master fee - even though I don't need them to provide physical media because I can download the clip they have posted themselves on YouTube. i just want the permission to use the clip.
They say I have to pay the $200 master charge anyway. This doesn't seem fair. Have you had experiences like this?
