Generally you can screen a commercial video in a live classroom situation, as long as the screening is for educational purposes and restricted to Curtin staff or students.

However, you cannot capture the video in an iLecture because then the video is being copied and communicated online via Blackboard which requires additional permission of the copyright holder. It is advisable to pause the iLecture recording while the video is being played or edit the video out of the recording.

The Library suggests, as an alternative, you use online videos from the Library Collection as these are governed by Licence Agreements which permit educational use in a live classroom situation and through online access. For more information, including links to video databases, refer to the Library's Online Videos LibGuide.
