The categories below outline some standard guidelines to consider when uploading content into SharkMedia.
Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. Don't upload videos you didn't make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to without the proper authorizations. Visit http://copyright.nova.edu for more information.
Harmful or dangerous content
Videos that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get hurt should not be posted. Videos showing such harmful or dangerous acts will be removed.
SharkMedia doesn't support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack a protected group, the content crosses the line.
Nudity or sexual content
Media containing pornography or sexually explicit content is prohibited from being uploaded to SharkMedia. If this describes your video don't post it. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
Spam, misleading metadata, and scams
Do not create misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails for your media. This disrupts the way people search for content by listing content that doesn’t belong in the search results. Repetitive content, whether in the form of duplicated media, or comments is prohibited.
Violent or graphic content
Violent or gory content should only be posted if it’s in a news or documentary context. Make sure to include enough information in the details to explain to people what’s going on in the media being viewed. It’s not okay to encourage others to commit acts of violence.
