YouTube's Copyright Insanity - Plagiarism Today

The library has come across a number of issues with the use of non-copyright compliant / illegal YouTube and Vimeo resources in canvas courses. You may wish to push this to program coordinators for distribution:

YouTube and Copyright

You can embed videos into Canvas, if the video you wish to embed is not an illegal copy of a work. To be legal and compliant the videos must have been placed onto the video site by the copyright holder.  As such, it is important to be able to identify the copyright owner of a YouTube video.  

This new “Library Shorts” video will show you how to identify the copyright owner and safely embed a video into your Canvas course. If you need further assistance, please contact the Library’s OLT team library.olt@rmit.edu.au
