Some content on the web, especially videos and photos, might be protected by copyright. Look for copyright statements such as All Rights Reserved or Creative Commons license to determine what protections might apply to a given work. Depending on how you want to reuse the work, how much of it you want to reuse, and what copyright the original creator has chosen, you may need to seek permission before reusing something from the web.

If you determine that you can use the work fairly, make sure you cite the information properly. Refer to your citation styles research guide to see how to cite web information in various citation styles like MLA and APA.
