    There's tons of great written content in my niche that I'd love to adapt to video form and make available on YouTube.

    I know that taking the whole text and using TTS is a BIG NO-NO right now.

    What ARE the rules on adapting other's content? Can I use 50% of an article? 100%? What if I just put the cliff notes?

    Please Help TubeBuddies!!

    I would say if you cite your sources after reading articles in sections with your own views on them it would be ok. You are then providing a commentary and crediting the source. I would say though if you just screen shot the page then that would be a no no. It would be like the work my daughters do for university. They can copy sections on text as a quote and then cite the text as opinion and as long as they provide an interpretation it is ok, Just copying and pasting is classed as plagiarism and could get them kicked off the course.
