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.
