Copy terms of use

Would these be covered by something like intellectual copyright laws or is it just a moral dilemma. I am in no position to write a full terms of use that correctly covers me, and since my site is a video site, I was thinking of taking someone like Youtube's and modifying it lightly to suit my site.
What are your thoughts on this? Thanks

Read there's so you know what you will need protection against , and what rules to enforce. Then make your own rules.

There are public copyright laws that automatically stop people from legally being able to use your own work without your permission, however you might want to embed a copy of the public law with a few ideas of your own.

I remember hearing something along the lines of "Legal Terms" can not be (C) but I'm not 100% sure. Or legal docs cant be (C). Look it up ?

Well personally I see nothing wrong with taking someone else's terms of use, going over it and curtailing it to yourself. And legally you cannot in essence copyright a contract. So using someone else's isn't illegal, but then you get into the whole copyrighting thing when it comes to websites. The entire website is deemed copyrighted. But I would be 99% sure that if it was taken to court the court would side with you. Because being unable to copyright a contract takes precedence over website copyright laws. (I.E. Just because a piece of uncopyrightable content is held within copyrighted content, doesn't by proxy make it copyrighted) Phew.... hope that made sense.

Theye ARE copytrighted...believe me.. I know someone has been done for it..

The best thing is to WRITE one yourself, not hard to do, if you are addressing the main points and you cover it all.. but as long as thet are your words, or those you get a legal eagle to do..you be ok...

You can get done for it.. so be careful.
