comment Fair use with copyrighted material
In addition, large broadcasters in the UK (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky etc) obtain blanket licenses from the collection agencies (MCPS-PRS Alliance, PPL) which allow them to automatically utilise any music published through the record companies collectively represented by these bodies. They all have Music Reporting Units, who provide the agencies with itemised usage (right down to length of excerpt used) so royalty payments can be calculated accordingly from the blanket licence fee they all pay.

comment What are some free (or cheap) options for hosting home videos that have copyright music in them?
Some services like Dropbox (and I think Box, too) transcode uploaded videos and offer in-page streaming. Not quite YouTube, but also policed far less. ;-)

comment Can I use unlicensed music as soundtrack for a video?
Whilst it's all free advice, some of it may just be from people who work in the field... ;-) Good point on chancing your arm if it's 100% internal - as long as OP isn't a doofus and uploads to YouTube, that should be 'get-awayable-with'.

'overarching', not 'overarchiving'!

comment What exactly does “Ethernet-capable HDMI cable” mean?
I've noted that the crop of current-gen TVs have an increasing amount of multimedia functionality. Taking this one step into the future, if (in theory) you had a display, NAS (or other storage medium) and an amp / switcher all supporting HDMI ethernet you could likely forego the requirement to have a separate network cable to connect them all together. Single cable streaming! I like the logical step of removing another cable, the final thing we we need is Power over Ethernet over HDMI (PoEoH... 'poweoh'? Sounds like Schwarzenegger trying to pronounce 'power' ;-) - THEN we're cooking with gas.
