how can I get video for a school news package?

Question by Michael: how can I get video for a school news package?
in an effort to help my schools news program cover global news, I decided with the permission of the teacher to do a package on how the catholic church is getting a new pope. I already asked her where I would get the video, and she said, film a nearby church. but if I’m gong to be discussing the pope, I kind of want show the pope, and the vatican, and all of that. I also want to show images of possible candidates (I don’t know how many candidates there are, if there are hundreds, of course I wouldn’t, but if there are like 12, I could have their faces scroll by over a voice over) how would I go about legally getting this video, ideally, I want to find videos on youtube, download them, and put them into my package, but that doesn’t seem too legal, lol. I did some looking in to it, and I found something called the “fair use act” would this cover me? would I be allowed to take videos off of youtube, if it is going into the news program? if not, what instead, could I do?

and does anybody know when the actually voting for the new pope begins? I did a google search and I couldn’t find anything.

thank you in advance. 🙂
sorry, i hadn’t realized I asked this question twice, the wifi was being weird, lol, I deleted the other one.

First, no, that’s not “fair use.” Fair use is doing a book review, then reprinting a paragraph in your review to prove a point.

However, some material can be fully reprinted. Virtually everything on Wikipedia, for instance. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:FAQ/Readers#What_is_the_license_agreement_on_the_contents_of_Wikipedia.3F In addition, virtually all documents produced by the U.S. government can be used. That also applies to photos. Here’s a Wikipedia photo of Pope Benedict with the explanation about usage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Benedykt_XVI_(2010-10-17)_4.jpg

Wikipedia also has a listing of all living Cardinals. Some have pictures of the Cardinal. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_living_cardinals

You can also do an “Advanced” Google search. Search for Catholic cardinals,. When you go to “advanced search,” you’ll see a selection for “Usage Rights.” Select “Free to use or share.” The photos there PROBABLY are OK to use. But to make sure, check the specific website to make sure that usage isn’t restricted.

Regarding videos, some YouTube videos are OK to use; others aren’t. When someone uploads a video, they can choose one of two rights usages: “Standard YouTube” or “Creative Commons.” With “Creative Commons,”–to oversimplify–you can use if you give attribution. You can’t use the other type.

Hope that helps.
