How to mark video work:

  1. CC Bumper: A notice at the beginning or end of your video stating the license
    • Download a default CC bumper
    • Create your own CC Bumper using these guidelines
    • Browse user submitted bumpers
      • "ViewShareRemix is a project to support open movies, by creating standard identifying marks and supporting visuals. Our initial aim is to create a pro-sharing equivalent for filmmakers to the anti-piracy notices and videos seen on traditional video content. We see it as a complement to the Creative Commons-licenses."
  2. Copyright Statement: A line of text stating the author(s), date & copyright
    • May either be added to the bumper or go on a separate slide
    • May be followed by "Some Rights Reserved"
    • example: (c) Name 2007, Some Rights Reserved
  3. Publish: Guidelines & standards for marking video work on:


  • a line of text onto the image, below it, or pieced onto a side of the image


  • plain text
  • pdf
