Copyright Concerns

YouTube aggressively removes videos that do not clearly meet copyright restrictions. Suspect videos may vanish without warning. If you produce YouTube videos, be sure to follow their copyright guidelines. > read more about YouTube copyright

We recommend YouTube as a video hosting platform. YouTube is used widely around the world -- the second most searched site after -- and is reasonably easy to use. In additionn to being free, it provides a good closed captioning service to help satisfy ADA accessibility requirements. The UBCMS Video and Video Galley components allow YouTube videos to be quickly loaded on your pages where they can be played in place by your site visitors.

Skillful use of visual elements such as photography and video will lift your content to an entirely new and engaging level, one that words can’t achieve alone.
