  • Is Publishing Online Education Videos (Altium Designer) Legal?

    Dear Feranec and fedevel family,

    I'm a Turkish hardware engineer who has been following your work for a long time. My job is desgining schematic and PCB layout for some electronic devices.
    I and some of my colleagues finished all of your online courses(free and paid.) Beside this, I follow all of your social media accounts and Welldone Blog.
    I learnt many things from you and still learning. I want to thank you for all the cool stuffs you taught.
    Once upon a time, I came across with one of your video on youtube (Tips for schematic design and PCB layout #TIP001).
    A sentence you said made me think for a while, "I'm doing this because I know a lot of things and it's a kind of shame to not share it with other people."
    Due to Turkish people have difficulties to understanding english, I want to share my knowledge on the internet in Turkish language. I think it may help many of electronics enthusiasts.

    I don't know how I will do it or if I can do it. However I have some serious questions tickling my mind.
    I use licenced Altium Designer at my office. But it doesn't belong to me personaly, belongs to the company I work for. Do you think that using this licenced Altium Designer and/or a cracked version of Altium Designer can cause any trouble on me or my company? I don't want to face with an accusation by Altium Designer company.
    Since you are the most experienced person I know, what would be your advice to me in this case?
    Do you think that I should start recording my videos or I shouldn't?
    What is the right path to follow?
    Any extra info will be more than welcome!
    Thank you in advance!

    Best regards.

      Paul van Avesaath's suggestion is really good - feel free to add subtitles to my youtube videos.

      About creating videos - the best is to talk to Altium (that's what I did when I started with my courses). I can not speak for Altium, but generally I have not seen them doing any problems to people who are creating free youtube videos about Altium. PS: I do own Altium license.

        Thanks for the answers.

        I'll get in contact with Altium as soon as possible.

        Dear Feranec,
        Now I got another question after your answer.
        If I place ads on youtube videos or publish my videos on a platform like Udemy, do you think I can have any problem with Altium?
        You have paid courses on the internet. Do you have a special contract or an agreement with Altium?

          I do have email communication with Altium where I asked if I can do courses. But you still need to be careful how you present the courses and what is inside - otherwise you still may get some unconformable emails - have a look at my Xilinx video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swVuqG9-H0E

            Hi,
            I think adding translation to videos does'nt bring anything. It would be quite difficult to read the subtitles and looking at video. So a new video series in Turkish would be much nicer.
