We often get inquiries from faculty trying to find out more information about copyright, especially regarding videos that are used for educational purposes. TLT does not provide legal advice, however, we do post resources or guidelines that may be helpful for faculty. Below is a well-designed infographic published by Penn State aimed to help people avoid copyright infringement when using video clips in their work. If you have specific questions about copyright, we recommend that you seek counsel from a lawyer who understands copyright law.
You can also check out the copyright information on our blog at http://tlt.cofc.edu/teaching/copyright-information/ for additional resources or guidelines.
