YouTube videos are copyrighted to the person who created and then uploaded them onto YouTube.  You can link to another person's YouTube video, but you should never re-upload it or claim it is your own.  Some YouTube videos can contain copyrighted materials (such as a clip from a television show) and those who upload this sort of media can get into trouble.

Using a flipped YouTube video in TedEd is totally safe because it links to the original video.

  1. I am a disabled composer and writer. I have never submitted copyright my stuff as I think that having it played years ago and urging it on YouTube and SoundCloud and Facebook I am proving that it is my own work. I used to play in disabled orchestras and belonged to scope and the RND. I am deaf with CP. I only have debit cards and don't trust these new publishing companies. Can you please advise?...
