Hi Everyone, 

Our Open Ed group has a question about the legality of embedding resources that are copyrighted with "all rights reserved" into an open textbook, or other OER. This would be done without obtaining permission from the creator of the resource. 

It is our understanding that [ http://www.michaelgeist.ca/2012/06/warman-v-fournier-copyright/ | linking to a "restricted" resource ] within an open textbook is permissible (and frequently practiced). However, does anyone know if embedding a a restricted video is also legally allowed?
