TEDx­Can­ber­ra Talks Usage Poli­cy

At TEDx­Can­ber­ra, our goal is to spread ideas, and we encour­age you to share TEDx­Can­ber­ra Talks widely. Of course, some import­ant restric­tions do apply.

If you need any fur­ther cla­ri­fic­a­tions after review­ing the fre­quently asked ques­tions below, please email us at hello@tedxcanberra.org.

What does the TEDx­Can­ber­ra Cre­at­ive Com­mons license allow?

We make TEDx­Can­ber­ra Talks avail­able under the Cre­at­ive Com­mons license “Attri­bu­tion – Non­Com­mer­cial – Non­De­riv­at­ive” in order to allow non-com­mer­cial entit­ies (like blog­gers, edu­cat­ors and groups of friends) to use them freely and eas­ily.

  • Video play­er: You must use the You­Tube embed­dable play­er. This allows us to fur­ther our over­all mis­sion by track­ing video usage. Scrap­ing video from TEDxCanberra.org or our You­Tube chan­nel is not per­mit­ted.
  • Attri­bu­tion: You must add a vis­ible link back to TEDxCanberra.org
