The Copyright Classroom: Lesson 7 Social Media

The video covered three questions: (1) Can songs or videos on online platforms (e.g. YouTube) be used freely? How do online platforms ensure copyright protection? (2) What are Creative Commons licences? How can a licensor set his/her licence conditions? (3) Do memes infringe any copyright? The Copyright Classroom series is supported by HKU Teaching Development Grant (TDG) and Knowledge Exchange (KE). It is a collaborative project of HKU Law Faculty, Architecture Faculty, Knowledge Exchange Office, Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative, and Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning.
