As we stagger towards offering you proper, high-quality downloads of SciCast movies (yes, downloads are coming. Promise promise promise), this query appeared in our email inbox:
We use ClickView, a digital video library tool to share video resource across the school. Would it be OK to place your films onto our digital library once downloaded?
We're publishing everything under Creative Commons licenses and you're positively encouraged to do this sort of thing. Hack the films up, join them together with other material, burn them to DVD, archive them, embed them in Powerpoint slideshows, hand your versions around at conferences – anything and everything you like.
The only caveats are:
- You acknowledge, somewhere, the source of the material.
- You don't sell the results for a profit. Duplication and distribution costs are fine, but no sneaky worldwide broadcast with advertising!
- You make your versions available under the same terms (for example: if you hand somebody SciCast films on DVD, you don't prevent them from handing on another copy).
