Copyright/ Legality: Can I upload screen recordings of me using Gaia into a YouTube video?
Hi there! I have a question regarding copyright/legality question:
Can I upload screen recordings of me using Gaia into a YouTube video?
I make YouTube videos and would like to share my route planning strategies and expedition progress with my viewers. Is it possible to upload screen shots, screen recordings and maps that I create on Gaia into my YouTube videos?
I received this response from Gaia Customer Support, hope it helps:

Yes, you can use images, screenshots, and recordings from gaiagps.com provided the following:
1. You have permission or own the copyright to the data (i.e., the tracks, waypoints, etc. are yours or you have permission to use them).
2. You use Gaia Topo as the map source for your screenshots. It is based on OpenStreetMap data, so as long as you attribute both OSM and Gaia GPS, this should be fine. You can attribute the map by adding
© Gaia GPS, © OpenStreetMap contributorsto the bottom corner of any map image. You cannot use other sources, you may only use Gaia Topo.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
