What does the iBiology Creative Commons license allow?
We make iBiology videos available under the Creative Commons license "Attribution - NonCommercial - NonDerivative" in order to allow non-commercial entities to use the videos freely and easily. Important restrictions apply, though, particularly for corporations. iBiology's Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license allows you to display iBiology videos under the following conditions:
Attribution (BY): You must explicitly reference iBiology as the original source of the materials, and iBiology's logos within the videos and visuals.
NonCommercial (NC): You can't use iBiology videos (or any parts of them) for commercial purposes.
NonDerivative (ND): You cannot alter the videos in any way. This means you cannot edit, remix, cut, shorten, add overlays or alter them in any way.
These conditions can be modified only by explicit permission of iBiology, Inc. The complete text of the license can be seen on the Creative Commons (CC) license website.

Running talks in their entirety: You may not edit iBiology videos, or alter them in any way.
Can I re-upload iBiology videos on an internet video platform?
