The Copyright Law has a section called “Non-commercial User-generated Content” (section 29.21) which allows Canadians to use copyrighted materials like videos, music, images, and scanned printed materials to create transformative works and share them publicly with some conditions. You can think of this as the "mash-up" law.
Videos you made for class may qualify as mash-ups, however, there are some important conditions you must follow. For an explanation of these conditions and examples of what you can and cannot do under this law, please see the Mash-ups section of our eLearning module on Copyright for Seneca College students.
