Use of back plate images that are not mine?

Hi
I was wondering in order to make the final render look good if we are able to use images for the back plate behind the animation to which I haven't specifically gotten the copyright permission.
I take it I can as the audio is taken without permission and all this falls under fair use?

For the record, audio, if under 15 seconds is typically considered fair use.  Using other peoples imagery however is different, I would say don't do it, and make your own.

I don't think that 15 second rule is actually legit. See if you used a 14 second audio clip of a hit song for your 15 second TV Advert then you'd be in breach of copyright as you are using it commercially. But since this stuff in the 11 second club is fairly harmless and not for profit I'd say that would be the reason they allow it. Not because it's fair use.

As for the image I'd still think it would of been fair use as it has the same parameters but if it's not allowed in the rules I guess I'd have to find another means.

I'm not talking about advertising, audio for that sort of thing is a different matter.  I was talking about peoples Youtube videos or streams.  I would say just use your best judgement.  I just don't want something to bite you where you'd rather not be bitten.
