I am a university student and have come across a video clip on your website that I am hoping to use in a presentation. Is it possible for me to use it?
I'm writing for permission to web-host a copy of a video clip from 'the fifth estate'. I have seen it on file sharing networks, but it’s not available on cbc.ca.
I'd like to use parts of Metro Morning for classroom use. These audio clips would only be made accessible to students using my school's password-protected site. Who should I contact to get permission?
