Video How-to: Copyright

Liz Mavor
04th September 2017

The ninth video in our series of top tips for creating videos

Do you want to use your favourite song under your video? Maybe you would like to use some footage from a TV program as well. When doing these things you need to be very careful about infringing copyright, particularly if you are going to be selling your video. Copyright infringement can also include photographs and other materials that you did not personally produce. In the UK you are liable to verify right usage and get clearance.

In this video we’ve got a solicitor explaining the ins and outs of basic copyright law in the UK.
