Q: Can I show YouTube clips in the classroom without seeking permission from the copyright owner?
Answered by: Laura Sider

Maybe.  YouTube videos are subject to copyright protection.  Specific YouTube videos may be made under permissive licenses such as Creative Commons and the streaming use in the classroom may be fine.  It is good to review YouTube’s Terms of Service or look to the video itself to see if there are any standard YouTube license terms, additional restrictions, or perhaps even a Creative Commons license to give you guidance.
