Have you ever given a thought about licensing your videos? Even if you’re not particular about how your videos are used by other people, it would be helpful to make it clear what can and cannot be done to your uploaded videos. There are traditionally two extremes in terms of copyrights. On the one hand is all rights reserved (c), giving only the copyright owner the right to use the material as he wishes. On the other hand, there is public domain (pd), where anybody can use the material however way he wants. But this is now changing to accommodate licenses somewhere in the middle, which specify how a material can be used. These are the Creative Commons (cc) licenses.
