Royalty Free Media Resouces
As with images and photos, videos can be used, for educational purposes, in a multimedia project. You can copy up to 10% or 3 minutes, whichever is less. You can also make alterations if they support an instructional objective (note that changes were made). Always credit your sources.
Copying an entire copyrighted video is a violation even if it's for personal use, because it is copying to avoid purchase.
