With other platforms or uses in mind, videos as short films is a good attitude/goal to have ... and is kind of how I see mine - no need to worry with copyright claims no matter where you post it upDrakhen99,
Those are always good ideas. I think of my motovlogs as short films instead of a video posted to YT. That way I can upload it to other venues such as a film festival, TV show, or my interest in making a group of post into an e-book with embedded stills and videos.
US copyright laws are wide and deep but once you understand the logic behind them, they make sense. I just wish they’d lower the cost for applying for one back to $5 instead of where it is at around $60 +.
This is why I like to get hands-on and get pics and footage in-person - there's nobody else who can claim my stuff
