    I need to get some video clips of nature scenes for a project that I am working on. So I was wanting to know if there was anywhere that I could buy some cilps to download.

    All the majors license

    You can buy stock footage from virtually any of the Networks. ABCVideosource, BBC Motiongallery (BBC/CBS/CNN), ITNSource.com (Reuters,Fox - I think Survival is their nature collection) - Nat Geo is rep'd by Thoughtequity.com
    You should be able to find what you want through those guys.

    Depending on what type of footage you need, try The Prelinger Files. Free to use as you please, but it's all old stuff and not of the highest resolution. If nothing else, it's good for a laugh.

    According to the link you provided for the LOC Prelinger site, it say's 'Getty Images represents the collection for stock footage sale', so it may be free for private use but you would have no distribution rights

    A little confusing, I think. A little more research says you can reuse downloaded material as you wish, but it sounds like you you need higher quailty footage on different media, Getty charges a fee.

    From the "Rights" section on the left side of the page:

    "Rick Prelinger and The Internet Archive hereby offer these public domain films from Prelinger Archives to all for free downloading and reuse.

    Liability

    The claim is that all of this material that RP collected is now in the public domain, which may or may not be true. I guess if you go through Getty, they take legal liability for that when they issue a license.

    www.istockphoto.com has a large library of still images, as well as a smaller library of video clips. They are very reasonably priced, compared with many other vendors.
