For the Air Canada article I was researching a video hosting service that would match my requirements of:
- Which rights of my work I would have to give away,
- what usage rights I could assign to my viewers,
- what level of privacy I could expect in terms of disclosure of my data,
- and where a service had its legal residence in case of a dispute.
I’ve decided to collect and extend my findings in this post in the hope that it can help others in choosing their preferred video hosting service.
A summary is provided at the end of this post, based on my understanding of the legal terms as a non-lawyer. All excerpts were made on April 25, 2009 unless otherwise stated. Emphasis and comments mine.
