Which YouTube/Vimeo etc can we link to without breaking S. rules?

Our own, obviously. And as the moderator wrote before locking the above thread, obviously we can't link "if it violates a copyright".

I'm probably just missing something, but I have no idea how to definitively tell if something violates a copyright. For example, how do i know if YouTube performer X got copyright to post a specific vid? I'm not a copyright lawyer/investigator!

I asked in the above thread how S. determines whether their YouTube-linking rules had been violated, but of course didn't get a response beyond the nebulous "if it violates a copyright" (how do we know?).

As far as I can tell, right now it's just a "I think I know it when I see it" kind of situation. Maybe the mod wants to clarify here instead, or if someone else has insight?

Thanks!

There was a post immediately after mine saying that the burden of proof was on YouTube, and Steinberg had no role here, but now it's disappeared ... what happened to it? Was the information correct?

That thread is basically just telling you to not link to a 64kbps Master of Puppets MP3 uploaded by skeletonkid666 in 2006. Link to a video from the band's official channel instead, for example.

Every time someone says "it must be easy to add/fix", a programmer dies.

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc

Thanks, Romantique Tp. I guess it's the "I know it when I see it" criteria. Easy enough with songs at the extremes!
