Legal or not?
As for the legality of it, using Dubsmash itself is completely legit, however the copyright of the sounds uploaded aren’t and users could certainly be sued, nevertheless the chances of happening are slim at best.
According to lawyer Wilde Beuger Solmecke, sending copyrighted material to friends privately is all right, the issue is posting it in public forums because “Contrary to popular belief, it is not sufficient to deny copyright infringement when posting to Facebook because a video has been made accessible only to a handful of friends. If a user has a lot of friends, then the post can not be assumed to be private within the meaning of the law.”
Also, lawyer Christian Solmecke says people should only rely on sounds free of copyright, for example animal noises or audios recorded by users themselves if they want to post them publicly. “Otherwise: no matter how funny the videos are, they should be shared exclusively by private messenger or email and not spread any further online”.
