Our Dream submission guidelines allow 'fair use' of otherwise copyrighted material:
Being video files have a slightly modified set of fair use rules. Fair Use allows for the limited reuse of copyrighted material so long as it is not done for financial gain of the person reusing the work, nor does it financially harm the original author by denying them sales etc.
In the case of Dream animated wallpapers, users can make limited use of video files created by other authors provided they meet the following requirements:
- The animations used in the .Dream file is either 15 seconds in length of shorter OR less than 25% of the original video file in length (whichever is shorter). So if you found a 20 second video you want to use in a Dream, you can use no more than 5 seconds of that video. Anything else, you are limited to 15 seconds.
- You must provide credit to the original author in the skin comments AND provide a link to your original source. Understand that if the original owner of the work asks us to take it down, provided proof of ownership, we will comply immediately.
