Thanks for your kind words about WatchKnow.
We thought at the outset of the project that we would be focused more on the
contest aspect of the project. Our notion was that a great deal of new
(open licensed) videos would be created for WatchKnow. We soon learned of
the astonishing number of educational videos already available online, which
changed our focus.
We have started tracking license information for some videos (if it can be
easily gleaned from YouTube or other sources). Displaying and making this
information searchable is certainly our plan, but given our huge assortment
of priorities, I have to admit in all honesty that it hasn't risen very high
on the list yet. But again, that isn't to say we don't intend to make it
possible to restrict search just to the free-licensed videos. I hope we'll
get to that before too much longer.

Congratulations on creating such a marvelous resource!
I have a question about licenses for individual assets in the
collection. I thought that early on I'd heard that there would be a
focus on open-licensed video, but most of the video appears to be
traditionally copyrighted. Is that correct? Is there a way to identify
the license for each asset? Is there a way to search for only
Thanks in advance.
