Copyright issues?

Since EDpuzzle is just streaming videos from YouTube or Vimeo through their embed APIs, we (and you) are in compliance with copyright issues. That is provided the original video isn't infringing on anything, in which case the video could be taken down at any time.
The original video still accumulates views through EDpuzzle videos, because we do not use the Auto-Play embed. Meaning the user has to click play in order to watch the video and it's verified that someone is watching the video and it's not just automatically playing. Through YouTube's embed API, pre/post-roll ads do not play, but the pop-up banner ads still show on the EDpuzzle video. This is important if the owner of the video making money from advertisers to assure their video content and ads are being seen. Again, this is in compliance with YouTube, as long as you are not making money directly off of video content that you do not own.

Besides, following YouTube terms of use, education is an exception and you can use any public video for educational purposes, as long as you don't make money out of it.
