Can I legally read a book on YouTube? The short answer is, well, yes. While many well-intentioned commentators have warned teachers against this practice, the fact is that copyright law—specifically fair use—permits many read-aloud activities online.
Can I read books on YouTube and get paid? You can’t read books on YouTube and get paid if you don’t own the rights to the content or if you don’t have permission from the rights holder so as this is a breach of copyright. You can, however, get paid for reading books aloud on YouTube by reading books in the public domain.
Can I record myself reading a book? Strictly speaking, it would be a violation of copyright law. You are essentially making a derivative work (an audio recording) of the original story.
