I’m in an Apple Facebook group and posted a YouTube video (The link) and the mod deleted it and said I need to download the video from YouTube and upload it to the group page. It’s a big FB group. Is this normal practice for FB groups?

I’m in the United States, so I think this might cause me some legal issues with copyright laws. The YouTube channel for this video has 275,000 subscribers, so the group isn’t small, so my post could go back to creator YT.

Am I overthinking this and is this something that people do without anyone caring or would I be crazy to post this on Facebook with my real name?


Have you contacted the YouTube creator? might they like the extra exposure if you credit them on the post?
