Why Interactive Video Powerfully Fuels Personalized Marketing Automation (And How to Get Started)

Marketers know automated messaging enables them to keep in constant contact with their prospects, managing triggered communications to thousands. But do you really know who’s on the other side? A marketing automation campaign or nurture stream is only as good as the information gained by content interactions. Wouldn’t you like to ask questions rather than waiting idly for click-throughs? That’s where interactive video and a personalized content experience come in. Interactive video triggers and analytics, like video impressions, play rate, and total views, can help you to identify interests, personalize content, and build momentum through relevance.

How the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Impacts Online Video Accessibility

In 2008, the ADA Amendment Act broadened the scope of how disability is legally defined; psychological, emotional, and physiological conditions are now included.

While a disability may limit an individual’s capacity, it is the responsibility of both public and private entities to provide equal access through accommodations suiting the disabled individual’s needs.

This civil rights statute was created for the sole purpose of limiting discriminatory practices towards disabled individuals. When the ADA passed, it was the first time a law ensured disabled individuals would not be excluded from participation in essential everyday activities. Before this, buildings were not legally obligated to provide handicap ramps, allow entry to service animals, or provide informational signage in Braille.

The ADA consists of five sections that cover different aspects of an individual’s engagement with society:
Title I: employment
Title II: public entities
Title III: public accommodations
Title IV: telecommunications
Title V: miscellaneous provisions

Copyright Law and Fair Use: Legal to Caption Public YouTube ...

January 8, 2014 | What is Fair Use?
The legality of adding captions to public YouTube videos is governed by the principle of “fair use,” a provision woven into the very fabric of copyright law.
Fair use balances the needs of content creators with those of content users and also allows for the evolution and exchange of ideas. Whereas copyright law is a set of rules, fair use is a set of exceptions of equal importance. Fair use is evaluated on four factors, which allow interpretation in diverse situations.
