: : i have video footage of people riding bmx bikes, i have permission from some people but no way of getting all, what is the law on reproducing my footage and selling it or posting it on the web? some footage was taken at organised events.
: : also how would i get copyright for my video?
Your video would be protected by copyright the moment you make it. You need to register it to the PTO, however. If this was a BMX bike contest, you should find out what document(s) the contestants signed. There may be a clause allowing publication of the contestants. Or, you could contact the organizers and get their permission--in writing, of course.
