|BBC copyright statement has changed?||3||03:22, 3 January 2012|
In checking the link for the copyright statement, as listed in question 2, "yes" response, I couldn't find the quote. It seems like the website now offers two versions, personal and business. Suggest rewording the response to inform learner that including a video in a course is not considered personal use, and then linking to the 2nd item in the business tab, and quoting the bit that begins "you may not..." through "...or elsewhere....".
The issue in the case study is making a local copy of the video for the LMS (not deep linking for users to access.) I'd prefer not to use the "not considered personal use" argument here as its a little grey -- eg classes would not be considered a business and the BBC definition is not too clear on this.
I think it may be better to use an extract from the following text under from 3.3.3 on the personal use page (http://www.bbc.co.uk/terms/personal.shtml), possibly the bit highlighted in bold rather than the text for businesses.
What do you think.
Yes, the bolded section does make the case in largely the same way as the previous. And it seems reasonable that if it's not OK to copy/reproduce for personal use, it's not OK for classroom use. (I see my error in reasoning as to the personal/business classification :)
I made the change on the page (altering the beginning of the quote to fit the text). Also I deleted the follow-up statement "Course materials would not qualify as personal use" to the former quote.
This issue is resolved :)
Really appreciate your critical review on the content. This is a great help in polishing the quality of the product.
I think the responses are now standing on firmer ground with less room for ambiguities. Your queries and suggestions are helping us to rethink and tighten up the explanations.
