Applying Creative Commons Licences to Videos Created in Camtasia

  • 2
  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago

My colleagues and I are using Camtasia to create videos for use by students at our community college. However, we'd like to give these videos a Creative Commons License, specifically a CC BY-NA-SA license so that other educators can adapt them for use at their own institutions This license would let others remix, tweak, and build upon these videos non-commercially, as long as they credit us and license their new creations under the identical terms.

Our question is whether we can use this license if we incorporate Camtasia's call outs into our videos. We've assumed that we won't be able to use Camtasia's music as we can't ensure that others will use Camtasia in their derivative work.

Hi Alice,

I'm sorry nobody replied sooner. It is acceptable to use the Camtasia Callouts in a Creative Commons video.The music and other assets should not be reused by anyone without a license.

Hi Glenn and Alice

I'd be interested to know how exactly the Creative Commons licensing works as far as Camtasia videos would be concerned. For example, what does one have to do? Create an image or put in a callout what the licensing is? Does it go at the beginning of the video or the end?

Cheers... Rick :)

I don't know the answer to this off-hand, but having used some Creative Commons licensing myself, they have a lot of attribution examples on their website creativecommons.org.

If interested here is the Camtasia End User License Agreement

Section 11.2 thru 11.2.3 should be relevant to this post.

Oops!

Clicking that link produces this:



But I'm not sure if that would tell me what steps to take with the video. Maybe it does?

Cheers... Rick :)
