TED Talks media licensing request form

At TED, our goal is to spread ideas. We encourage the TED community, non-profit organizations, bloggers, news media and the like to share TED Talks in contextually relevant ways on non-commercial websites using embed code on TED.com. Non-commercial usage of TED Talks should follow the terms of our specific "Creative Commons license Attribution - NonCommercial - NonDerivative (BY-NC-ND)" and the TED Talks Usage Policy, which may be updated from time to time.

If you want to use TED Talks in another way, including to publish it for one-time use or a limited term, license a talk for a publication or embedding a talk in larger media production; such as a film, tv series or documentary, please complete the form below and someone from our team will be in touch!

If you are a company, organization or educational institution, and are interested in using TED Talks for learning and development, leadership, or DE&I initiatives, we’ve created a new program called TED@Work. Learn more about TED@Work here and fill in the form on that page for inquiries.
