Is it any violation of copyright or Fair Use to post Movie Trailer Videos on your web site?

I see these Movie Trailer videos or previews posted on numerous review sites that have blog posts or web pages with titles like The 10 Best Documentaries on Amazon Prime, etc., and on that page are the Movie Titles, the Trailer video and a short blurb.


Hosting the trailer on your site without permission is definitely not allowed, but you are probably allowed to embed a YouTube player with the video. In that situation you'd only need to check YouTube's terms of use, not the original copyright holder (disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer and the legal situation may also depend on the jurisdiction).
