Research How-TO

 

When you are adding images, videos, or other content that you did not create your presentation, it is important to make sure you aren’t violating someone’s copyright on the work. All images and videos are covered by a certain type of license depending on who created the piece and what it is being used for.

Copyright is a notoriously confusing issue. Best practice says to always seek permission to reuse a work, but that usually isn’t possible or practical. Images or video that exist in the “public domain” lets you avoid this problem altogether. Additionally, works with a Creative Commons license let you use any licensed CC works by simply giving credit to the creator.
