Free ‘Copyright Basics’ Video Series

It’s never been more important to understand copyright laws, and the new animated video series by Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) makes it easy. The first installment is roughly 6.5 minutes in length and features two fictitious coworkers (Jim and Jill) discussing the do’s and don’ts of distributing published content.

You’ll learn the basics of copyright, why it’s important, how it’s obtained, along with what is and isn’t covered under US copyright law.

Also included is a discussion on fair use, first sale, and attribution. The video is free and can be viewed and/or downloaded at
