Like other content on a website, videos are covered by the TOU unless there is a copyright notice that states otherwise. Copyright ownership may not be immediately apparent. You may need to use your professional judgment when evaluating videos. Here are some things to consider:
Permission to use videos on YouTube must be granted by the copyright holder (the person or organization who created the video), not YouTube.
Since the copyright on YouTube videos is retained by its owner, it is usually necessary to check the owner's website for usage restrictions if they are not provided on the owner's YouTube page.
If you do not see a license or restrictions on the video page, click on the icon of the video poster and open the About page to see if any restrictions are posted there. This is also where any links to the poster's website may be listed.
Please note that the poster must be the copyright holder for any use terms to apply. If the poster has taken the video from another source (i.e., a recording of a news segment from a different news outlet), the video cannot be used.
Some videos posted to a specific site will not have the transcript included. We have found this to be the case with many government site videos. However, some will offer a YouTube version.
