Cats riding Roomba’s make YouTube great, and people love to share the links. And sometimes employees want to put videos of these felines and other snippets in their presentations, or maybe an apt clip from a TV show, not to mention that great cartoon from The New Yorker.
Problem is that all of that content is probably copyrighted.
In this podcast, Liz Bilodreau, Senior Client Engagement Manager of the Copyright Clearance Center explains what compliance professionals need to know to prevent misuse. Listen in as she explains:
- The importance of getting a better understanding of what your employees are sharing
- The need to understand that employees don’t always know what they can and can’t share, and the difference between what you can share in your personal and professional lives
- The necessity of ensuring that training also includes information about the process for securing permission and a reminder that even internal use within the company can constitute a public showing
- When determining how employees use content, don’t do it with the goal of stopping it, but with the goal of identifying how media is used and what licenses your organization may need
- What your policies on content should contain
