YouTube Adds Creative Commons Content to Video Editor

If you're in need of B-roll for your next YouTube opus, you're in luck. YouTube is adding tons of Creative Commons content to its video editor. The new feature goes live today at noon ET.

YouTube's editor tool, which launched last year, has been steadily adding features to make the process of creating videos fuller, says YouTube Product Manager Jason Toff.

You can access more than 10,000 videos (from C-SPAN, PublicResource.org, Voice of America, Al Jazeera and others) via the CC tab on the editor. You can also tag your own content as Creative Commons, so that other users can incorporate it into their videos.

All content can be used and remixed at will (for commercial use as well), as long as it's attributed. Links to the original CC videos will be listed underneath the video that they're included in.

Toff believes that this addition will help YouTubers get even more creative with their content - in a manner that protects the rights of all content creators (obviously, you can only mark your own content as Creative Commons, and anyone who tries to circumvent that rule will be subject to YouTube's copyright protection services).
