Question by Anna Banana: Is it copyright infringement to use short news clips from CNN in my documentary?
I’m making a documentary in school about the evolution of school food. I want to include News segments and clips, but I’m getting a little bit confused about the different copyright and fair use laws. Like how do other documentaries get new clips? Do they have to buy them from the company? Also, if I just want to film a website, (like film my screen) do I need to buy a copyright as well?
Answer by Michael
Depends but highly doubtful. How long is the clip? Under a certain time frame does not require permission. Just write them and ask. If you attribute, they will grant permission.
