Sure, if they were allowing you to use their stuff in return for a mention I might see some sort of a requirement. But I always figured that since I'm paying them for that...
I guess your mileage may vary.

In regards to using Presenter Media, even if you purchase a subscription, they require attribution for some use cases including e-learning and other videos.
You can read more about that here:
I would do as Joe and Timbre4 suggest and err on the side of caution by adding a mention of usage on the last title slide of your video under a Credits sort of section.
I did not say or suggest that any media service you pay for is unreliable and I certainly didn’t suggest the only way to create videos and avoid legal issues would be to personally film or create everything that will be used in the production.
As I read the first comment you posted I surmised that you’ve probably been uploading videos that are in violation of copyright law and that could place you in the unfortunate position of being sued.
My only goal in responding was to help you avoid that scenario. I even subjected myself to the humility of admitting that I made the same mistake myself.
When you purchase and download media from the companies that provide them you must first agree to adhere to their policies. If you violate those policies or don’t understand them, the responsibility ultimately falls on your shoulders.
I don’t see the connection between what an attorney told you about obtaining a copyright for yourself has to do with using copyrighted materials you have obtained from a vendor.
In the future you might want to be more careful when it comes to discussing your legal practices in a public forum.
My only point with mentioning the legal stuff was that it seems to me that unless someone is blatantly taking Disney materials and offering videos for sale, I might think the odds of getting sued are pretty remote.
Not that I'm condoning or suggesting that anyone break the law. ;)
Hey ho, to each their own. I've seen reports in this forum of folks using material supplied directly inside Camtasia itself and getting called down on a DMCA violation on YouTube and videos removed as a result.
Tricksy situations that are creativity killers!
Have a good day, all! Rick :)
