    I want to upload clips from an obscure late 50's TV show onto YouTube, though i'm not sure whether the show is copyright claimed on YouTube or not, i assume it isn't due to how old it is, but how can i be sure whether the show is copyright-holded on YouTube?

    I've seen old Disney cartoons on Youtube, so I'd say go for it!

    It's not in the public domain yet so they might bet removed.
    That's about it.

    Copyrights expire 70-90 years after creation (or 70 years after the death of the author, one of the two).

    You can always just try, and see what happens later. Worst comes to worst you re-edit the video.

    Not to mention when corporations as entities own the copyright (as is the case most of the time these days), it can be indefinite, as corporations can outlast any human lifespan.

    Also, I was quite surprised that I couldn't find the full version of The Wizard of Oz, a film from the 30's, on YouTube. Don't think that just because something is old or obscure that it's not protected, because it could bite you in the ass at any time.

    Copyright or not, Youtube doesn't protect Fair Use and anyone could claim it and have it removed.

    @DinohScene A quick Google check shows that works are protected for the life of the creator + 70 years in the UK, and I think also the US applies this rule too.

    Still, I wouldn't recommend any TV show regardless of age to be put up on YouTube, considering the amount of bullshit DMCA and abuse claims and such that have happened there.
