    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.
