For that standard low res we video includeing a copy of the lisence is
a serious problem. the isue that the GNU logo itself appears to be
under the free art lisence is interesting complication although not
one most people will encounter.

I'm not really thinking about semi professional or professional films
but well in my case narrated instructional slide shows. So the number
of people involved isn't a problem. The problems asside from incudeing
the lisence are:

Has to be GFDL only since I can't figure out how the almagimation
stuff is meant to apply to videos. Free art  are and CC are out (thank
goodness for Wildebeests).

Ok I've included the lisence now how long do I have to include it for?
10 sec? 1 min?
