Video Clip Use “Decision Tree”

Here’s a well-designed infographic published by Penn State aimed to help people avoid copyright infringement when using video clips in their work. Follow the tree and answer yes or no questions about your content. If you run into the “stop” signs, you shouldn’t use the clip in your work, as it’s likely violation of copyright law.
It’s important to note, however, that even “educational use” will not completely protect a video from being pulled from public video sharing sites, such as YouTube or Vimeo.
