Generally it is okay for you to:
- Provide a link to a publicly accessible website;
- Provide a link to a website (including links to documents or videos hosted on websites);
- Embed a link to a YouTube video.
Linking to this content does not make a copy, so this minimises the risk of a copyright infringement.
However, if you do provide a link:
- Make sure the content is a legal copy, uploaded by the copyright holder or with permission of the copyright holder. If you link to an unauthorised copy, this can be interpreted as "authorising" or "facilitating" a copyright infringement.
- Make it clear that the link is to an external website by including appropriate acknowledgement of the source.
