There has been speculation on the the social networks today that the BBC has banned the satirical use of Royal Wedding footage online. To clarify, the BBC gave this response earlier today:

It has always been made clear by the BBC that use of its basic live news feed and BBC One programming for comedy, satirical or similar entertainment purposes would not be permitted contractually. This is a standard condition that applies to all broadcasters around the world who have licensed content from the BBC, ITN and Sky which includes footage shot inside Westminster Abbey in agreement with Clarence House.
