Copyright for a song

Hello! I wanted to put a fake link on my website that leads to a rickroll. Will my site get taken down if I put it in?

What is the source? Is it a mp3 or a youtube video etc.?

It’s a youtube video embed.

Then no, you do not need copyright since it is hosted on youtube.


Actually, I did that too for april fools!

It’s fine, so long as it relates to the website you are embedding’s TOS (which in this case is legal because youtube allows and even encourages embedding).
