I have recently created an animation/parody of famous song and have added about an 8 second clip of the song as the background audio for my animation. However, I would like to post the animation (with background audio) to Instagram and YouTube but have heard that because I am using some of the original song that this could infringe on the copyright and I could potentially be sued. Is this true? Is there any way I could post the animation (with the song clip) without infringing on the copyright laws?
Just to clarify, I will not be making any money from the animation/video as I will not be advertising on it, etc. Does that change this situation?
Thanks for any helpful advice.
