I'm wanting to finally get around to building a wedding speeches site that I've been wanting to do for a while on a great domain, and have a question on content.
Anyone who has written a wedding speech before will know that the majority of wedding speech lines can be found on multiple sites. So is it ok to use these on my site? It'll be a paid membership site to unlock all of the content.
I'm not confident of taking lots of content off other sites but are speeches/lines copyrighted? After all, people are free to use these lines in their speeches to the public and so are passed around pretty fast. And a lot of the lines have been used in thousands of speeches around the world for years.
Any views are appreciated.
