Q. Can I show a youtube video to my class? Is this legal under copyright law?


Yes, a YouTube video can be shown in a classrom, as long as:

  • the video is streamed directly from the site and is not downloaded
  • citation to the video is included in powerpoint for the presentation. Remove the embedded video after the presentation and include citation and link for reference
  • the video is not uploaded into CourseSpaces without permission from the copyright owner

More information is available on the UVic copyright website.
