Well first it doesn't matter how many seconds it is, if its half a frame you would still need permission, but that is if you are profiting from it in anyway.

If its for YouTube and you have your adsense banners running then you have to get permission

If its just for you and your friends then its all yours.....

(I recommend asking an entertainment attorney)
