    How to properly attribute videos?

    I was just wondering about how to properly attribute videos on hubs? I'm writing a Hub about some English celebrities and I was hoping to include a couple of clips on the hub as well, because I thought it would make it more interesting. I've found some official clips on Youtube, for example uploaded by HBO, not just random people, but I was wondering if they were okay to use? And if they are, how do you properly attribute them? Or is it just enough that it says who uploaded it at the end of the video? I've tried looking in the Learning Centre but I couldn't really find how to attribute videos

    Hi Rebecca,

    with regard to Youtube videos. Under each video, there is a share button, simply left click and it opens a link below already highlighted in blue. Copy and paste into a video capsule in your hub and you are sorted. Attribution is automatic and it is also a back link to your hub, so win win. This is much easier than pictures that are not yours were you have to give the URL and Author,

      Thanks for your help! That's what I thought it must be because there isn't any space in the capsule to give attribution, but it's better to be safe than sorry smile
