You won't be able to email the video to anyone - it (unless it's REALLY short) will be most likely too large.

You'll want to export the video from iMovie which should save it as either a .mov or .mp4 or .m4v (I don't use iMovie much) - you'll then need to upload it somewhere (like, for example, dropbox) and then email your friend the link. Their computer should be able to play .mov if they have quicktime installed and also should be able to play mpeg4 video (if they can't, then they need to get the codecs or install quicktime).

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

Just upload the movie to Youtube or something like that. iMovie has that feature built right in, so you don't have to redo your movie. >_<"

Youtube has quite strict copyright functions, but Vimeo seem to be a bit more lax.

I will bet you TWO undervalued US dollars that you can still upload it to Youtube. They will just end up giving you a notice of copyright music, but you can still watch your video there. They just put ads on it and share it with the license holder. Happens all the time.

Depends on the music and the copyright. On one of my videos, they muted the entire audio track.
